The Bastille built during the 14th century as a fortified royal residence is the most famous monument in Paris that doesn't exist: the notorious prison - the quintessential symbol of monarchic despotism - was demolished shortly after a mob stormed it on 14 July 1789 and freed all seven prisoners. The site where it once stood: Place de la Bastille, is marked by an outline of the prison in paving stones. In the centre of Place de la Bastille is the 52-metre bronze Colonne de Juillet (July column) topped by a figure of Liberty. It was erected in memory of the victims of the July Revolution of 1830 and the February Revolution of 1848. They are buried in vaults under the column.
Very central In Paris, just closed to the Place des Vosges, the Bastille area is not only wellknown for its cafes/bars/restaurants but for its harbour (the most beautiful one in Paris), the Bastille opera and its easy access to all public transportations: many lines of bus, metro and open tour stop.
Our apartments are only in the heart of Bastille, the ouest part, closed to the Marais.
