The casemates are on the eastern side of the Bastille complex, close to "La Tronche". It is possible to walk down from "La Bastille" on this side of the fortifications too. It is more "mineral" as it is follows all the way the fortifications and has no garden part as in the Parc Guy Pape trail. The lowest part of the fortifications, the "Casemates" have been turned into a scientific show room that presents temporary shows on various subjects, organizes lectures, etc?
