La Pallice is the commercial deep-water harbour of the city of La Rochelle in western France, and a seaport on the Bay of Biscay. It was named after the French philosopher La Pallice. The large submarine bunker built during World War II still stands there, although it is not being used. It is also the location of the fishing fleet, which was moved from the old harbour at the centre of the city during the 1980s. The area has beautifully maintained its past architecture, making it one of the most picturesque and historically rich communities on the Atlantic coast.

La Rochelle is an ideal sunny holiday resort, with its beaches, greenery, fortifications, and chalk cliffs. Indeed, it is France’s third most visited city. Near the port is the Aquarium de La Rochelle, near the tourist office. It houses 10,000 species of flora and fauna. Tour the three 14th C Towers of La Rochelle - Saint Nicolas, Chaîne and Lanterne - located at the entrance to the Old Port, which now opens to a yachting marina. The Natural History Museum and other museums are well worth a visit, or at least a view from the outside.

So, cruise ship visitors will probably just walk around the old town and do their own exploring. Other buildings of interest are the Gothic Porte de la Grosse-Horloge, the Renaissance Hôtel de Ville, and the 18th-century Hôtel de la Bourse. The rue des Merciers is typical of the old streets. La Rochelle Central Market is open every morning. Further afield there are many interesting sites. Adjacent to La Pallice port is the Ile de Ré with its beaches and great cuisine, reached by a 2 km bridge. The town of Cognac is 80 km inland. Interestingly, Rochelle salts, a laxative, was prepared in 1675 by a local apothecary. And the submarine bunker in La Rochelle appeared in the film Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
