  • The site should be called "telegrafkullen" because the French defence where have all the master for telegraphy and reconnaissance inside the fence!

  • Recently opened to the public, I went during the heritage days. Well that access to (military residential area), this site deserves a display and historical panels. The 360 degree view is absolutely superb! I think that tourism would gain that the Town Hall of Cayenne or the territorial community of Guyana are reclaiming the mount CÉPÉROU for a complete layout.

  • Not essential but however allows to have a 360 degree view of Cayenne is its surroundings. Be done by day and watching where you put your feet because the site is not absolute cleanliness!
