The hôtel de ville of la Rochelle is one of the oldest townhall of France, and  especially one of the oldest still in activity. Built in the 13th century,  the first building was already destroyed by a fire… Its reconstruction started in the 15th century for the surrounding wall, and then at the end of the 16th century.
