The Bastille was a fortress in Paris, known formally as the Bastille Saint-Antoine. It played an important role in the internal conflicts of France and for most of its history was used as a state prison by the kings of France. It was stormed by a crowd on 14 July 1789 in the French Revolution, becoming an important symbol for the French Republican movement, and was later demolished and replaced by the Place de la Bastille.+ More
Our recent trip to France was our first. We reviewed many apartments before my wife found this one. The studio was small and efficient - exactly what we expected and suited our needs perfectly. The neighborhood was quiet and within easy walking distance to most any place in the Marais district.
