France enjoyed its La Fete Nationale at the weekend as its citizens gathered to celebrate Bastille Day on July 14.

It marks the day in 1790 when the prison-fortress in Paris was stormed by the public during the French Revolution.

The act symbolises the overthrowing of aristocracy and beginnings of the modern French nation.
