Towers of La Rochelle Ticket

If you're visiting La Rochelle, you can't miss a visit to its beautiful medieval towers, the unmistakable symbolic landmarks of the enchanting French city.

What to expect

In the Old Port of La Rochelle, in the French region of Poitou-Charentes, you will see three magnificent medieval towers. These represented the gateway to the old city and controlled the transit of merchant ships. Saint Nicholas, the Lantern, and the Chaîne are the 14th-century watchtowers that were built as a defense for the city.

With this ticket, you will have access to the Lantern tower, the tallest of the three, and the only medieval lighthouse left on the Atlantic coast. You will also enjoy entry to Saint Nicolas and Chaîne tower, which were used to monitor the movements of ships. You will hear all about how these two watchtowers were linked by a chain.
