Fort Ceperou, Cayenne

3.0
Climb up to Fort Ceperou and explore what’s left of this centuries-old fortification. A bell tower and a few fort walls are all that remain, perched up on top of one of the highest points in the town. This spot offers some of the best views of the city. The fort's remains lie in ruins, giving the site an atmosphere of an aging fortress that has seen its fair share of battles.

    Apart from a panoramic view of Cayenne, an absolutely not put place in value, dirty. One wonders why the City Council does not make a place laid out, explaining the history of Cayenne.

    The most beautiful view of Cayenne and the Cayenne River on the other side. But strong in ruins which may collapse, it is a shame... 😮

    visit not very recent one afternoon of Summer 2009 before renovations. armed with a little courage it's worth to go there on foot for the view of the city and partly on Cayenne River side low barracks.

    Views of Cayenne, the port and the river! Plus: easily accessible if it is motivated.

Where to stay in Cayenne

Appealing to a rather exclusive set of travelers, chain hotels and resorts in the west of town offer a great range of luxury services, modern facilities, and rooms overlooking the river. Step back from the water to find humbler lodgings at basic hotels, guesthouses, and rental properties catering to budget-conscious travelers.
