Plaza
“ The Place de la Bastille is a square in Paris where the Bastille prison stood until the storming of the Bastille and its subsequent physical destruction between 14 July 1789 and 14 July 1790 during the French Revolution. No vestige of the prison remains. The square straddles 3 arrondissements of Paris, namely the 4th, 11th and 12th. The square and its surrounding areas are normally called simply Bastille. The July Column (Colonne de Juillet) which commemorates the events of the July Revolution (1830) stands at the center of the square. Other notable features include the Bastille Opera, the Bastille subway station and a section of the Canal Saint Martin. ”

“Lovely Bistrot cuisine! For some reason, I can't pin the one in Vincennes. For your information, the address is 2 Avenue de Paris, 94300 Vincennes. The one at la Bastille is great too and you are only 6 metro stations away.”
