The old port of La Rochelle as it is today:http://www.travisnet.org.uk/LeRoc/Easter%202008...
La Rochelle is a city in western France and a seaport on the Bay of Biscay, a part of the Atlantic Ocean....Under Henry IV the city enjoyed a certain freedom and prosperity until the 1620s, but the city entered in conflict with the central authority of the King Louis XIII with the Huguenot rebellion (1622)....Many Huguenots emigrated, founding such cities as New Rochelle in the vicinity of today's New York in 1689. La Rochelle, and the siege of 1627 form much of the backdrop of the later chapters of Alexandre Dumas, père's classic novel, The Three Musketeers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Rochelle
