Ignored by Spanish explorers, who found the region too hot and poor to be claimed, the region was not colonized until 1604, when a French settlement was founded, but later destroyed by the Portuguese. French colonists returned in 1643 and founded Cayenne. Cayenne in turn was attacked and taken by the Dutch in 1675. In December of the following year, French ships under the command of the Vice Admiral Jean d'Estrées arrived and bombed the fortresses. After two days of shelling, the Dutch governor surrendered and Cayenne fell back into the hands of the French.
