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.

A must to see to enjoy the view and understand a little of the history of La Rochelle. All three towers are worth looking at, but this is the most important one to see. They do close for lunch.

This is only €5 entry so well within a tight budget. Great piece of local history and gives amazing views of the city and port. A good way to spend a little time in this lovely city and have great views as the same time.

Every tower has its own charm and peculiarities. I would choose this one for the views over the old port and the Atlantic Ocean.

Great photo opportunities from the top of this tower, with breathtaking views out to see and across La Rochelle. As per the other tower reviews, buy the 9EUR ticket to see all three, it is money well spent. Be careful with the steps in here,...More

Of all 3 towers, I would pick this one for its location (for picture taking) and for having more historical items of interest despite what some travel websites may indicate.

This monument has a nicely signed and well-explained tour of the history of the area and this tower specifically. It would be nice if they had more objects inside of it, or even more information about the few objects they do have. The view of...More

Kids & families will enjoy this more than couples I think. Theres a smal shop, an entry fee of 6 Euros (( I think if you want to do all 3 towers) & a guide book (in English for us - other languages are available)...More
