Villers sur mer, entry point of the Greenwich Meridian in Continental Europe, is the only French seaside resort located on this Meridian...
In Villers, the meridian is physically represented by a line marked on the rounded viewpoint in front of the central dyke, right after the casino, and by a line on the soil, illuminated at night. A small and simple secret to situate our resort on any world map: Villers is situated at the exact intersection of the prime meridian and the French Coast.
An entire hall of the Paléospace l'Odyssée is dedicated to the Greenwich Meridian. You can find an intimate setting highlighting the very nice Navy artifacts of the Paris Observatory and the collections of the Paléospace.
