Why come?


You will like
Originally a chalk quarry in the 15th century, then a refuge for the inhabitants since the 17th century, hence their nickname of Muches (hiding places in Picardy), a place for smuggling in modern times, a popular tourist site for Australians and Englishmen during the First World War, a passive defense for the German army during the Second World War, the Cité souterraine de Naours has stood the test of time and reveals its history. Come and discover this huge site carved out of the limestone of the Picard plateau, remarkably organized and recognized as one of the largest in Northern France. At the end of this network of galleries, extend your visit with a visit to the Museum of Old Crafts and Trades and the Great War Interpretation Center. The estate also features a 10-hectare wooded park with an adventure park, two windmills, farm animals, a children's playground and mini-golf. Finally, the Brasserie des Muches is open from 12pm to 2pm for lunch, and continuously throughout the day for snacks and drinks.
