8 Notes
Founded in 1664. Cayenne is known as the export site of cayenne pepper. From the 18th to the 20th centuries, like the whole of Guiana, it served as a place of political exile and hard labor. Due to the tropical climate and the spread of severe fevers, it was believed that the deportee to Cayenne has little chance of surviving (according to some [what?] Data, no more than 3%). During the French Revolution, especially during the Thermidorian Convention and the Directory, the Sinnamari prison was called the “dry guillotine”. However, General Pishegru managed to escape from Guiana. In 1809 it was occupied by the forces of the anti-Napoleonic coalition.
The city is located on the banks of the estuary of the Cayenne River, on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Distances from Cayenne to Paris is 7,100 km; to the city of Fort de France (Martinique) - 1,500 km; to Paramaribo (Suriname) - 324 km; to Macapa (Brazil) - 554 km.
