Full description

Gain entry to the 3 medieval towers of La Rochelle with one ticket: Saint Nicolas, de la Lanterne, and de la Chaîne. Learn about their tumultuous history and royal past. Get your entry ticket for the main attractions in the Old Port of La Rochelle — the 3 Towers. Dating back to medieval times, learn about the tumultuous history of each of these towers.  From prisons for Huguenots and foreign sailors in the 16th-18th centuries, to military prisons in the 19th century, plenty was happening in La Rochelle in times gone by.  Discover the Saint Nicolas Tower dating back to the 14th century. See how it was equipped with royal living quarters, as well as a chapel, while functioning as a defense tower.  Mosey around the De La Chaîne Tower, also dating back to the 14th century. Home to exhibitions since 1998, it used to be a place to collect taxes from incoming boats and the entrance to the port. Learn how the tower was damaged and rebuilt in the 19th century.  Explore the De La Lanterne Tower, the old lighthouse, ship disarmer, and, later, prison for many centuries. Count the 600 graffiti prisoners left on the walls over the years.

    Top discovery! A good plan that is really informative and pleasant to carry out. You can really discover 3 different worlds, and at the same time feel the historical power of the three towers of La Rochelle. Quality / price ratio more than correct for the three towers. Price, however, identical on site.

    Interesting visit. It takes around 1h30 for the visit of the 3 towers. During my visit, the virtual and augmented reality animations were excellent.
