La Rochelle Old Harbour
Pierre lives in Rochefort in France and he sent this view card from La Rochelle. Thank you very much.
La Rochelle is a city in western France and a seaport on the Bay of Biscay, a part of the Atlantic Ocean. La Rochelle's main feature is the "Vieux Port" ("Old Harbour"), which is at the heart of the city, picturesque and lined with seafood restaurants. Here are the most recognisable landmark in La Rochelle, the three towers - now together a listed National Monument - stand at the entrance to the harbour. They once formed the most important part of the town defences against invasion from the sea.
Kuvassa La Rochellen vanha satama ja kaksi keskiaikaista tornia, Chaînen torni ja Saint-Nicolasin torni. Tornit suojasivat kaupunkia mereltä tulevia hyökkääjiä vastaa.
