[FR] Le coteau du Saut-aux-Loups est un ensemble d'habitations troglodytiques du XVe siècle qui débouchent sur d'immenses galeries creusées pour extraire la pierre de tuffeau. Elles sont utilisées depuis le début du XXe siècle pour la culture du champignon de Paris. De vastes galeries permettent de découvrir les différentes étapes de la culture des champignons.
