Landmark
Take an eerie and mysterious tour of Camp De La Transportation, once the largest prison in French Guiana. Take the guided tour and learn about how convicts arrived by the boatful in 20 day trips across the Atlantic during the 19th century, and explore the cell rumored to belong to Henri Charrière. You can still find the infamous convicted felon's nickname "Papillon" inscribed on the wall. Be aware that while some tours are conducted in English, a lot of the staff speak little of the language.
