Villers-sur-mer, the entry point of the Greenwich Meridian in continental Europe, has the distinction of being the only French coastal resort located on this Meridian.

Renovated in 2016, the meridian is materialized by a line on the rounded overhang of the central dike just after the casino and by a luminous ground marking at night.

A simple trick to locate Villers-sur-mer on any map of the globe: the town is located at the exact intersection of the zero meridian and the French coast.

A room in the Odyssey Paleospace is dedicated to the Greenwich Meridian. It offers an intimate scenography highlighting the beautiful marine objects of the Paris Observatory and the museum's own collections.
