La Rochelle

I loe this chair sculpture in the park

Very old Fountain

Lovely old cobblestone streets and arches

The market here runs until 3pm

This building is from the 11th century! And still in use!!!

Love the way the old houses hung over the lane ways.

This motif is on the parliament buildings. We were not able to go inside because there was a fire and they are rebuilding.

They say online that this is called the tower of the big clock, but I prefer what Ghislaine called it - she called it "Porte de la Dames" or "Door of the Wives". I expect that many women came and stood at that doorway, waiting for their husbands to come back from sea.

Crepes on the quai before we go.
