  • Metropolitan visitors, do not expect to optimize your time on Cayenne by finding refuge in this building that it'd be cool during the heat of the day. Here, like in the story of Daudet, Meridian and summer torpor seized the Sexton, and you nail outside for long hours, in this neighborhood that becomes deserted.

  • A visit without hesitation... Beautiful colonial style church, built under Louis Philippe... The building became a priori Cathedral later. General décor is naïve, fresh and colorful, like Guyana

  • This Cathedral is indispensable in Cayenne, it is not similar to the cathedrals we see in metropolis.

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.
