Place de la Bastille, Paris: 58 reviews and 125 photos
The Place the La Bastille is one of the bigger Paris squares (actually a round-about).
Until the French revolution the Bastille Saint-Antoine was located here. That building was demolished in 1789. In the pavement of the square the contours of the building are shown in different colours stones. A part of the old fundaments still are vissable in the Bastille métro station.
At the South of the square the Canal Saint-Martin is visible. This waterway goes undernath the square as well.
At the East side the new Opéra Bastille was build as on the location of the former Gare de la Bastille train station.
At the center of the square the Colonne de Juillet is located.
