Looking for a different kind of tour? Try a new experience travelling through time with the CIAP exhibition (Centre d’Interprétation d’Architecture et du Patrimoine) and the voices of the town, while cycling through the historic streets of “Little Paris”.
Listen to the story of Saint Laurent du Maroni
The CIAP (architecture and heritage interpretation centre) opens its doors to recount a century of history with pictures, objects and sound effects. The story of Saint Laurent du Maroni, built by and for the penal colony, is recounted in pictures from the arrival of the convicts in 1852, until 1938. The town’s architectural history and people are the subjects of exhibitions in several rooms.
