We bought the pass that allowed us access to all three towers and were glad we did. Be prepared for quite a bit of walking and an occasional tight spot. The history of the towers is interesting and gives visitors a glimpse into life and...More

We had an interesting walk along the water front. Amazing to learn the history of the towns and why certain features were built.

A little frightening if you are afraid of heights, but well worth it for the views and history. A good couple of hours

These towers are from the Middle Ages and they were built to ensure the safety of La Rochelle as a harbour town. They look amazing and very different from each other, and they've served different functions over the years, from housing royals in Medieval times...More

One of three towers in the port of La Rochelle and all worth a visit.All different and interesting.Entry fee is 6e but take the deal 3 for 9e. Take your time in every tower as you will miss a lot if you hurry.

There are two ticket options. Buy the option of both towers. You can go to the second one on a different day. The history of the towers is quite fascinating. Look out for the carvings made by prisoners. Lots of narrow stone staircases, definitely not...More
