There are definitely more impressive cathedrals in France, but if you're in La Rochelle, you can definitely pop in for a quick visit. Nice and peaceful. Close to lots of other sites in the older section of La Rochelle, so it's not really out of...More

You feel you "ought to" visit the local cathedraL,but this particular cathedral isn't that impressive. Short walk away from the sea front and shops to locate it.

We stopped in here while on the walking tour of La Rochelle, absolutely breath taking, the architecture, the windows so beautiful. Sat for a while to reflect and lit a candle in memory of a departed friend. Well worth a visit
