"Center of French Universe" Point Zero Tip by TexasDave

Point Zero, Paris: 3 reviews and 5 photos


This brass compass star is considered the exact center of the city and the point from which all distances from outside the city are measured.
People drop coins and do other things supposedly to give good luck. It's a little hard to find at first, it's not very close to the entrance of the cathedral, but just keep looking down, you'll find it.

Address: Place du Parvis
Directions: Directly in front of Notre Dame Cathedral.
