There is little hint that the Bastille prison once stood in Place de la Bastille. The prison was torn down on 14 July 1789 in the French Revolution. However if you go down into the Bastille Metro station, it’s a different story – the last vestiges of the prison are displayed for all to see.

And there are more fragments from the Bastille in the nearby Square Henri Galli.
