Info about Bastille, Paris
All that's left of the Bastille, symbol of the French revolution, is the column in the center of the square. Interest in this area has increased since the controversial construction of the Opéra-Bastille. The immense building made of grey metal and glass inspires different reactions at first view. Inside the theater has a capacity of 2,700 and a stage big enough for a helicopter to land. Behind this cultural center is one of the most fashionable streets in Paris. Rue de Lappe welcomes visitors with a great number of bars and bistros open until late. But the neighborhood isn't only about being trendy. Nearby is one of the city's oldest street markets that is bustling with shoppers every morning except Mondays. Prices are excellent and get even better when stalls begin to close around midday. A stay in the Bastille area provides an authentic taste of the city.
