La Rochelle

Map on/off

My friends Axel and Gwen were married in Gwen's home town of La Rochelle. On the Atlantic coast of France, it's a well-known old port town with strong ties to its Breton past. But for every old stone building in the town, it seems you can find a  new luxury yacht in the harbor! (2001)

The harbor at La Rochelle---always full of boats and yachts. Overlooking the rooftops of old La Rochelle. As in the past, ships must sail between the towered harbor entry. One of the many open-air markets throughout the town. The clock tower entrance through the old town wall.
