Waypoint 1

N 48°51.431
E 2°20.446
At the entrance of the garden is a metal sign. On the 11 of March of the year you search, two people were killed. Take the year they died and add the digits together (example: 1976, 1+9+7+6=23)
to find A.

Waypoint 2
N 48°51.3A5
E 2°20.537
32 houses are around this triangle but only one is taking care of books (search for “reliure”). Multiply each digit of the year it had been created and add 14 to find BCD.

Waypoint 3
N 48°51.BCD
E 2°20.8BA
In this place, many want to offer you flowers. Become a postman to count them. EF is the number of letterboxes.

Waypoint 4
N 48°51.211
E 2°20.9EF
Their heads were cut during the French revolution but they were kings of Juda and Israël. They are all in a row on the famous lady of Paris. Half of them is GH.

Waypoint 5
N 48°51.GG0
E 2°21.GH0
Between those two years engraved is the number that didn’t come back. Make the substraction of those years and add B to find I.
