When the French Revolution is discussed everyone thinks of the Bastille. However, there is a little visited site in Paris where riots began on the 28th of April 1789. These riots set in motion the rioting that marked the beginning of the French Revolution and the historic storming of the Bastille. This historic spot is the La Folie Titon on old Faubourg Saint Antoine marked by two simple plaques. The plaques are attached to a stately apartment building that is, of course, locked. Be patient, someone is bond to enter or exit. If you can get past those locked front doors there is beautiful tile work describing the history of La Folie Titon. The tiles are mounted very high in the entrance on the left side and I had wished that I had a flashlight to better see them.
