Place de la Bastille was the former site of a prison. And until 1988, there was nothing more to see. Upon celebration of the bicentennial celebration of the French Revolution in 1989, the 3,000-seat Bastille Opera house was built. The Bastille Opera is presented in an amazing curved mirror-glass architecture.
