The area
Address
Neighborhood: Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s at night this area really comes to life. Students and young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait for coveted tickets during the day. Towards Republique, skateboarders practice their tricks while others chill out at the square. If you’re looking for late-night revelry, this is your neighborhood.

Dans le 11ème arrondissement, à l'angle des rues du Faubourg Saint Antoine et de Charonne, dans l'alignement des immeubles, vous découvrirez cette fontaine monumentale d'une douzaine de mètres de hauteur. De style classique, également nommée "Fontaine de Trogneux", sa construction s'est réalisée de 1719 à 1724 sous la coupe de l'architecte Jean Beausire. Elle faisait partie de cinq fontaines prévues pour l'adduction d'eau du Faubourg Saint Antoine. Aujourd'hui, il ne reste qu'elle et la fontaine de la "Petite Halle". Elle présente un fronton triangulaire de style Louis XV, des bas-reliefs et à sa base deux mascarons en bronze représentant des têtes de lion d'où sort l'eau qui s'écoule dans une grille du sol. Cette fontaine a été classée aux Monuments Historiques en 1995. Vous pouvez venir en métro, ligne 8, station "Ledru-Rollin".
