  • Small very nice overlooking Cayenne, view nice, but site is not highlighted, and that's a shame... Little (no?), strewn with rubbish in some places... Too bad, this fort deserves better...

  • Very nice historical strategic site overlooking the city of Cayenne and the entrance to the river of Cayenne, but which is not highlighted because not maintained nor lit at night.

  • Nice to see friends or family. This place is located on a hill in the city of Cayenne. From this height you can see the entire city of Cayenne and its surroundings with a beautiful view of the Cayenne River and the bridge of the games.
