You can also come across the Big Clock there, thanks to which you can climb up to the famous La Rochelle arcades.

Aquarium La Rochelle

The aquarium

The Aquarium of La Rochelle was born from a family passion for the underwater world, an initiative of René Coutant. Today, no less than 800,000 visitors per year contribute to scientific research and the implementation of actions to protect biodiversity. On the program: 1.5 hour visit, 12,000 marine animals and a “Memory of the Oceans” souvenir shop to immortalize your visit.

Musée Maritime La Rochelle

Maritime Museum

Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of sailors thanks to three visit areas: the ships afloat with the emblematic France 1, the exhibitions and the great hall of the old auction.
