Sainte-Mere-Église Travel Guide


Sainte-Mère's symbolic importance as the first French village to be liberated from the Nazis is commemorated by the Borne 0 (Zero) outside the town hall—a large dome milestone marking the start of the Voie de la Liberté (Freedom Way), charting the Allies' progress across France. The main reason to visit, especially if you're here for the D-Day Beaches, is the fascinating Musée Airborne.
