Boulevard de la Bastille

Paris, France

Boulevard de la Bastille

The Boulevard de la Bastille is the southwesternmost street of the 12th arrondissement of Paris, situated in the quartier called Quinze-Vingts. It overlooks the east side of the Paris marina, known as the Port de Plaisance or Port de l'Arsenal, with which it forms a boundary with the 4th arrondissement of Paris. (The Port de l'Arsenal is in fact the terminus of the Canal Saint-Martin, which begins at the Place de Stalingrad.) The boulevard also lies directly north (across the Seine) of the border between the 5th arrondissement and the 13th arrondissement of Paris.

With a total length of 705 meters (2,313 ft), the boulevard starts at the juncture of Pont Morland (Morland Bridge, which covers the lock separating the Canal Saint-Martin from the river Seine) and the boulevard Quai de la Rapée. It ends at the Place de la Bastille, home of the Opéra Bastille.
