Full of information and very imaginatively laid out. A real instant shot of L Rochelle history. Good for adults and children. A real feast of cultural and social information. A must see!

Limited entry price (less than 20 EUR for a family of 6) gives you access to some of the best views of La Rochelle. Must Do even if they are quite similar at the end.

One of the few tourist attractions open. All very historical and a very good video of how La Rochelle was part of Frances development/migration to Nouvelle France -Canada. 9 euro to see all 3 towers over a couple of days. Bargain.

Based in the old port, the three ancient towers are well worth a visit. The graffiti in the Lantern Tower, which was used as a prison over several centuries, is particularly interesting. The views from the top of each are worth seeing (if you don't...More

La Rochelle we found a beautiful place to visit. The sun was shining so very pleasant. We wandered around and stopped off for "petite dejeuner" in a cafe opposite the towers.
