  • The tower is a true symbol of the port city of La Rochelle. In the evening, the rays of illumination they are especially beautiful.

  • The St. Nicholas Tower and the Tower of the chain controlled access to the port, now become Marina. Date St Nicholas of the 14th century and associated defence functions of residence. The terrace at the top (37 m high) offers a great view on the old port, the city and, in clear weather on fort Boyard and the pertuis of Antioch. The chain, smaller Tower is focused on the topic of migrants towards the "New France." Very well.
