Poster La Rochelle – La Grosse Horloge


Let’s continue our walk on the port of La Rochelle with this view of the Grosse Horloge. The Door of the Big Clock, recognizable by its large size, is a gothic tower that separated the port from the city. At the beginning, it was intended to ensure the defense of the city in the event of attack by constituting a last rampart to the invasion. Then it lost its usefulness, especially because of the defensive force deployed on the harbor by the three towers of La Rochelle, which were judged to be quite capable of defending the city from invaders on their own.
So useless, the inhabitants of La Rochelle wished that the municipality would allow them to know the time at any time of the day. The municipality then decided to place a clock on what will become, in fact, the tower of the Big Clock.
