The eerie Camp de la Transportation, where prisoners arrived for processing, was the largest prison in French Guiana. Convicts arrived by boatfuls and it took 20 days to cross the Atlantic. The tourist office offers 1½-hour tours – most guides speak minimal English. One cell has Papillon's name engraved, but whether this was really his cell is up for debate.
