Port de l'Arsenal


From the above ground platform on Line 1 of the Bastille station, 
you have this view of Port de l'Arsenal.  
For many years I imagined this view was a narrow stretch of the Seine.  
When you look at a map it is simple to identify.  
This basin connects Canal St. Martin to the Seine 
and is a  part of France's national Voies navigables de France 
(VNF, Navigable Waterways of France) system.


Did you know that from Line 5 the remains of the Bastille can be seen?
