At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

A foundation stone of the city.

The Cépérou fort was founded in the 17th century. In 1643, the New Company of Rouen established a presence on a headland previously inhabited by an Indian tribe. Built to plans by military architect Vauban and redeveloped over the decades, the only remains of the fort are walls and a bell tower.
However, the history of the site is carefully preserved, marked as it has been by many battles and other conflicts. The Cépérou fort's strategic location meant that the city of Cayenne gradually clustered around it over the years.
