    La cité souterraine de Naours

    by JohnnySpangles Written Aug 7, 2008

    The underground city, a network of man-made tunnels chiselled out by centuries of hiding peasants. See my Naours intro page for further dubious details. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Take a packed lunch (we ate in the car park but there are benches etc inside) and you're looking at a four-five hour visit. Fairly reasonable at about 36 euros for a family of four.

    Going underground... La cité souterraine...

    by Kettleman Updated Jul 4, 2006

    The underground city of Naours is located half way between Amiens and Doullens and it is a real city 33 metres below ground level.

    Miles of tunnels formerly inhabited and used by the locals as refuges in time of strife and invasion.

    The tour can be talen in English and the student guide did his best to take us through the history of the tunnels and even add some jokes.

    Entry (in 2006) is €10 per adult and the tour underground lasts about 45 to 50 minutes. It is quite staggering to see how much of the stione was cut principally to provide stone for the great monasteries and cathedrals in northern France.

    The erliest work was begun by the Romans.

    Grottes de Naours Bar Restaurant: What is that?

    by Kettleman Written Jul 6, 2006

    We tried to book 8 of us in the party in the restarant in advance and quite amazingly they asked for 30% deposit up front. Duh? How were we to know what we might spend?

    Anyway we made do with bar food.... check out the pic and guess what it is.....?

    It is a cheeseburger. The bun was the consistency of cold poured concrete and god only knows what the yellow gunge was....

    Favorite Dish: Nothing. Horriblel pre-prepared microwave burgers, chips/frites/fries okay, and nasty pink sausages that had a strange plastic like skin on them and what might have been frankfurter in the middle?

    Don't laugh, it's a cheeseburger....
