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 – mostly because of its location and its name – as a column commemorating the French Revolution. It actually was built in 1840 for the 10th year anniversary of the July Revolution of 1830.
