Usage of y ou là

Hi - thanks for this great website. I have a question regarding y and 'la\la-bas'. I am not sure whether they can be used interchangeably? For example we could both say J'y vais ou je vais là and, if so, does it keep the same meaning? Thank you!

Hi Federica, 

My answer to a similar question asked by Jessica may be useful to you.

Normally, you will use  Y when you know exactly which place it refers to.

Bonne Continuation!
