Площадь Бастилии (фр. La place de la Bastille) — площадь в Париже, обязанная своим названием крепости Бастилия, разрушенной во время Великой французской революции. Находится на границе 3, 4, 11 и 12-го округов. Является местом пересечения более чем десяти улиц и бульваров.
В начале Великой Французской революции 14 июля 1789 крепость была взята революционно настроенным населением. На то, чтобы разобрать крепость, ушло три года. От дома № 5 до дома № 49 по бульвару Генриха IV брусчаткой была выложена черта, которая обозначает контуры стен разрушенной крепости. На пустыре поставили табличку с надписью «Ici on danse» («Здесь мы танцуем»), и ежегодно здесь стали устраиваться народные гулянья. Традиция сохраняется до сих пор.

It’s a square where once was a Prison until stormed during the French Revolution on July 14, 1789. There is no vestiges of prison, instead there is a column called July Column that holds ‘Liberty Angel’ on top. If you respect history it’s nice to see it and pay respect to brave people who gave their life to change French history forever. July 14 is a national holiday observed with parade, many music concerts, performances and fireworks to celebrate French people’s bravery. Nowadays there are many nice places close by to enjoy famous French cuisine very reasonable priced since this part is not posh area of Paris. Many stores offer variety of products also cheaper than in some other areas. It’s very nice market place on weekends to buy freshly baked goodies, fruits, vegetables, smoked meats, fantastic cheeses and tasty homemade delicacies. Historic place where French people still come to start occasional demonstrations, in their revolutionary spirit paying respect to revolution uprising and French legacy.

About 650 years ago the first building was started-- as a part of Paris' defences. This was added to, and in the 18th century it became a much feared prison. In the late 18th century it was destroyed during an uprising by the populace/the French Revolution. The date of the start of this was 14 July--- which is still celebrated as a national holiday in France. The square is where the prison stood. In the middle is a large column- called the July column. On top of the column is a statue called the "Angel of Liberty". On Thursdays and Sundays there is a large open air market which could/should be combined with a visit to this interesting square. I hope that this Review has been helpful!!!

As a tourist, this spot was overrated. There is nothing really here except a music hall and a tall monument. But not very tall. It was an ok spot, but I would not return. Nothing to do or even really see. Place de la Concord is more interesting even though the tower there is smaller. There are better places in Paris to see and things to do! I would not waste my time here!

Area was under construction when we visited but was worth going to see for the beauty of the structure, quite something really.

A memorable place, and close to a Metro station (which conveniently connects to most major attractions in Paris. Very confusing to traverse on foot, though, due to its circular form. There's a free public toilet nearby.
