La Rochelle



  The town of Saintes, on the river Charante has many Roman remains, including the arch seen in the first picture and the amphitheatre in the second.





  Normally you can go down into the amphitheatre but when I went there it was closed off for a concert which had been held the night before.





  Another view of the arch and beside it a shot of a plaque on the cathedral which says "To Saint Louis conqueror of the English..."
