A fortified town in the Middle Ages, La Rochelle was a great fishing and trading town. In its streets you will find half-timbered houses representative of this period but in particular, the Old Port, emblem of La Rochelle with its two large medieval towers: La Chaîne and Saint-Nicolas. From Un Hotel en Ville, you will probably pass by several times a day and immerse yourself in this area full of life which changes throughout the day. The Vieux Port is located just a 2-minute walk from the hotel. A third emblematic tower of La Rochelle, La Tour de la Lanterne, can also be discovered. You can also simply enjoy it from the hotel’s rooftop terrace.
The city has remained prosperous over the centuries. The Renaissance also offers a rich architectural heritage, including the Town Hall, which was magnificently restored after a disastrous fire in 2013.
