Overall Score

2.2

On the Atlantic coast of the French West Coast, the city of Caianena, the administrative center of the Province of Guiana, has opened. It is located on the coastline of the Cayenne Natural Watershed. The entire area lies in a tropical climatic zone with a prevalence of monsoon rains. For only two months a year, it is only dry (September and October).

Cayenne is known as a place of origin and quotation in the past few years. For almost three centuries, from 18 to 20, prisoners have served their sentences here. The harsh climatic conditions, the danger of the fever did not allow most of the convicts to serve their sentences. ×Long ago, the area was often known as Dry Saltine.

Cheyenne has been known for a long time for its sugar production. But over time, the city became a well-known center for the production of bricks, and a political and transport center of the country. The port plays an important role in the economy of Cayenne.

Founded in 1664, the ancient city has retained the atmosphere of a bygone era. The first Europeans to arrive on Georgian soil were the Spanish. But they were not attracted to the area because of its constant heat and proximity to the coast. In the 17th century the French made their tribe here, but the Portuguese have since overtaken them. In the western part of Cayenne, in the west, there is the Place de la Côte dOrénébôle, which was built by the Jesuits in the 18th century, with the buildings of the village, the town hall, the post office and the provosts office. ×Through the city, the Lucas and French canals carry their waters.

Silent witnesses to the bright events of bygone eras are the once-mighty fortifications of the 17th century fortress of Seeperu. The Museum of Georgian Culture and the Felix Hébert Museum house fascinating artifacts that can tell us a lot about the history of the city and the events the citizens have endured throughout its existence. In the northwest part of the city lies the largest part of the city, the Palermo de Palermo. The most popular beach is on the citys territory of Rémy-Monongolie.
