Paramaribo city tour €30.00
The name Paramaribo is probably derived from the name of an Indian village called Parmurbo. A trading post was founded in the village in the early 17th century. This was taken over by the English and they built a fort called Willoughby. In 1667, Abraham Crijsen conquered the area. From the fort, Paramaribo expanded westwards. After the abolition of slavery in 1863 and the end of contract labour in 1873, many people moved to the city.
Since 2002, the centre of Paramaribo has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List of historical monuments. One of the protected buildings is St Peter and Paul Cathedral on the former Counts Street. This building is made entirely of wood and is also the largest wooden building in South America.
