The Paléospace, Musée de France, is the outcome of a wonderful project that highlights the heritage of Villers-sur-Mer.
Meet the emblem of the seaside resort
The Villers-sur-Mer beach
With the Vaches Noires cliffs to the west and a low hill to the east, the beach offers a beautiful contrasting landscape.
The Vaches Noires cliffs
These cliffs are more than 100 m-high and stretch for 5 km between Villers-sur-Mer and Houlgate, mainly along the municipalities of Auberville and Gonneville-sur-Mer.
The Pays d’Auge
The Pays d’Auge is a plateau made of chalk spots covered by flinty clay and some silt.
Villers-sur-Mer, entry point of the Greenwich meridian in mainland Europe, has the peculiarity to be the only French seaside resort to be found along this meridian.
The Villers-sur-Mer marshes
The marshes, a real place of encounter between the beach and the countryside, represents for birds a site to reproduce, stopover and feed.
The Saint-Martin Church
The Saint-Martin church is typical of the neo-gothic style that blossomed in Normandy in the last quarter of the 19th century.
