Discover La Rochelle city in this tour conducted virtually from my home in La Rochelle using digital resources
This Live Virtual Tour will be delivered personally from my place by me using live video conferencing software. . .
La Rochelle is one of the oldest French harbour on the Altlantic Coast. The city is famed for its archway streets, its old harbour and its medieval towers, and also dozens of renaissance and neoclassical private mansions.
The old city is packed with evidences of its past grandeur. The canon shaped gargoyles are evidences of its independence, the Huron faces sculpted on the facades recall the powerful trade link that once existed between North America and the city.
It will be my pleasure to show you around and introduce you to La Rochelle history and legacy using digital resources (video, pictures, paintings). We will also talk about that strong link that connect France and Canada through La Rochelle harbour, and mention some of the reasons that made La Rochelle the last stop for many French departing to the new world like the king's daughters.
We will see La Rochelle's highlights such as :
- the old harbour and its towers
- the town hall
- the historical city center and the most interesting ship owners' private mansions
- the Providence Convent, last home of many king's daughters
- the archways street (not all of them because their total length is about 3km)
- the cathedral
- and of course the Atantic Ocean
