Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni

(4.4/5 based on 65+ reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: sightseeing
As an arrival point for prisoners, Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni played an important role in French Guiana history as a penal colony of France. Reminders of this fact remain abundant, as many of the former prison buildings and other administrative offices still stand and serve as examples of 19th-century French architecture in the Tropics. These buildings underwent restoration in the 1980s, bringing back their glory after years of neglect and damage due to heat, humidity, and rainfall. This city of about 40,000 inhabitants also owns a picturesque location along the Maroni River. Make sure to add nearby Maroon and Amerindian settlements to your list of places to visit in Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni. With our custom trip planner, French Guiana vacations can be built around trips to Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni and other destinations in French Guiana.
