  • Fixed stage of all my visits in Cayenne. It won't be a majestic and monumental squares square comparable to the big cities but the environment is cute. Tall palm trees and benches that make it a good place to stroll and relax. Good restaurants and bars nearby and the evenings, on weekends the square fills up with many pickup trucks of street food.

  • This square in the center of Cayenne is emblematic. A must see if you visit Cayenne, it is close to the Town Hall, Prefecture and shops. Parking is easy in the sector.

  • It is a bit of the historical center of Cayenne, but also of the prefecture administrative insofar as Center (very important administrative center is within walking... A charming place, surrounded by Palm trees in the square, bars and restaurants, and 2 steps from the South Atlantic ocean... This place is also amazing in terms of climate, in fact, sandy and dusty in the dry season, it becomes green and covered with grass in the rainy season... Cett
