Gravissant en lacet les 350 mètres de dénivelé qui mènent au sommet du puy de Dôme, le sentier des Muletiers est l'ancien chemin qui, dit-on, conduisait les pèlerins au temple de Mercure, dieu des voyageurs, des marchands et des voleurs, ce grand temple était un important lieu de culte pour les Gallo-Romains. Ses vestiges ont été découverts en 1872, lors de la construction de l'Observatoire.
