Distances from Paris to every part of metropolitan France are measured from place du Parvis Notre Dame, the vast square in front of the cathedral graced by a statue of Charlemagne (AD 742–814), emperor of the Franks, on horseback. When the sun floods onto the cathedral's exquisitely sculptured front façade, the square is packed, making it a challenge to locate the bronze star embedded in the cobblestones that marks the exact location of Point Zéro des Routes de France.
