Meaning & History

This is the name of a fortress, formally known as Bastille Saint-Antoine, which played an important role in France's internal conflicts.

The place name literally means "fortress, tower," which comes, ultimately, from Old Provençal bastir meaning "build" (may originally be "make with bast.")
