  • A tall slender and elegant lighthouse hemmed in by houses along the harbour side. Another little gem in La Rochelle.

  • This old lighthouse was built in its current form in the 19th century, into a house with a mansard roof. the light is deliberately set much higher then the house lights to avoid confusion to shipping.

  • Phare rouge and phare vert are two very distinctive and impressive lighthouses in La Rochelle. Both built in 1852 located on the quai Valin in the old harbour of La Rochelle. Apparently they are both still being used by sailors today to navigate safely into the harbour of La Rochelle. Beautifully located and really a curiosity for visitors to this stunning city. A photo opportunity.
  • Green lighthouse.
