  • Unfortunately the fort has been left to decay and there is no information on display to explain the history of the building either. At best a 10 minute diversion.  more »
  • This Cépérou fort built in 1652 this little interest. It is rather run down, the only advantage he presents is the clear view it offers on the city of Cayenne and the ocean. Cépérou was a native American Chief, who has given ground to Poncet de Brétigny, he had a son named Cayenne which gave its name to the city.

  • A bit disappointed 😞 Not properly maintained
  • This fort rundown that dates back to the year 1627 this little interest, perhaps the view it offers on the ocean and the city of Cayenne. It was built on land acquired by Poncet de Brétigny who bought it to the native American chief Cépérou, King of the galibis, he had a son named Cayenne which gave its name to the city.

  • What a beautiful view on the ocean to the West and the beautiful city of Cayenne to the East. In bass, so can be seen the place of Palm kernels and the various municipal buildings. Do before discovering the market of Cayenne, because it goes up a bit for overhanging the city! The faster access through the street of the Fort-Cépérou...
