Remains of the Bastille history

Some remains of the Bastille, the state prison which was famously stormed thus sparking the French Revolution, can be seen in a small park known as Square Henri Galli in Paris.

A small plaque next to what seems like an innocuous pile of stones marks this out as the remains of one of the most notorious sites in history.

For the original location of this prison, see the entry for The Bastille.

I lived in Paris for many years; just recently moved away. Anyone interested in remains of the Bastille should know that some other vestiges can be seen inside the Metro, on one of the underground quais (I forget which one, exactly). Also, if you look, you can find the outlines of the Bastille paved onto the streets and sidewalks as you walk around the Place. Finally, note that the column in the center of the Place has nothing to do with the history of the Bastille prison. Voilà. Happy hunting!

Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours! While we work as hard as we can to ensure the information provided here about Remains of the Bastille is as accurate as possible, the changing nature of certain elements mean we can't absolutely guarantee that these details won't become a thing of the past.
