The La Roquette Prisons (most accurately described in the plural) were prisons in the XIe arrondissement of Paris, on both sides of rue de la Roquette. Opened in 1830, they were finally closed in 1974. Today the site of la petite Roquette is occupied by square de la Roquette, the largest square in the 11th arrondissement.
