July Column at the Bastille in Paris


I’ve shown you the July Column before, but it’s not a reason to do it again:


from boulevard Richard-Lenoir.


from Bassin de l’Arsenal


 One quick reminder about the July Column. It is often mistaken by foreigners Рmostly because of its location and its name Рas a column commemorating the French Revolution. It actually was built in 1840 for the 10th year anniversary of the July Revolution of 1830.
