The "place of the cabbage trees" is adorned by monuments and gardens, and of course by the many palm trees from which its name is derived.

I arrived at night just as the Carnaval events ended for the day. Relatively clean with all the people. By next morning the area was clean and no evidence of an event. Surrounded by palms and nice place to sit and relax.

Only nice part of the town. It is georgeos but around it nothing special, chinese storer in which you cant enter how bad it smells that your head could explode. Nice to have a vacation photo

The park is a nice little stop in the middle of town. Although not a whole lot happening when we were there, it was a good place to sit and enjoy some shade. The main shops, restaurants and banks are all surrounding.

It is the square where the Palmist Restaurant is located. Nice place to take pictures and get a little stroll.

If you love palm trees this is obviously a fun place to visit! It is centrally located and has an interesting statue in the middle.

Nice place in Cayenne. You can eat sandwiches all around the "place des palmistes" at night. Be careful after midnight and dont go south of the General de Gaulle street bording the "place", or dont go alone.

This is the central area where you can have a feeling of the city, the administration area and the nice Palmiste Hotel

Well, to be quite honest there I s not a lot to do in cayenne. To have a square with palms as one of your main attractions?! It is a square alignment with palms.it's also used as a road and a parking lot.
