An important square in eastern Paris, where the former fortress and prison section were gone, left the later July columns, which became a modern square, theatre and street cafe.

Additional Information

Introduction

History and modern times mingle at Paris' Place de la Bastille. Where the notorious prison and fortress once stood, today you can visit a lively public square. With the symbolic Colonne de Juillet as its centerpiece, the place also boasts the Bastille Opera, home of the Opéra national de Paris, and a masterwork of modern architecture. Less than five-hundred meters south, you may stroll luxuriously down the Promenade Plantée, a landscaped greenway extending to Saint-Mandé, and just west of the Opéra, enjoy watching the pleasure boats come and go at the Bassin de l'Arsenal, a leisure port that connects to Paris' canals.
