The old Port, La Rochelle, Poitou-Charentes, France 

The French city of La Rochelle is a seaport located on the Bay of Biscay, a part of the Atlantic Ocean. The old harbour opens into a strait that has been protected over centuries: the Pertuis d’Antioche.

Headcity of the Charente-Maritime département, its old town has maintained a rich and well-preserved architectural heritage, which makes La Rochelle one of the most dynamic and attractive cities on the Atlantic coast, alongside Bordeaux and Nantes. Its main attraction, le Vieux Port (Old Harbour), is at the heart of La Rochelle. Enclosed by its mighty medieval towers (Saint Nicolas and La Chaîne), the picturesque harbour is now lined with seafood restaurants and bars.
