History

From the 1830s until 1974, the La Roquette district housed two prisons. La Grande Roquette, which was destroyed in 1900, and La Petite Roquette, which became a women’s prison in 1920. The latter has since been replaced by the Square de la Roquette.

Cultural sites

  • La Roquette fountain: built in 1846, it was used to supply water to the then densely populated Faubourg Saint Antoine district. Located at 70 Rue de La Roquette, it is no longer in use.
  • Notre-Dame d’Espérance Church: the modern contours of this Catholic church inaugurated in 1997 are the work of Bruno Legrand and Jean-Luc Leroy. It perfectly illustrates the architectural diversity of the La Roquette district.
