Overview
More
In the heart of Alpilles, the monumental “Carrieres de Lumieres” host extraordinary multimedia shows which are unique in the world. Spectators are totally immersed in the images projected onto all the surfaces of the rock. The ground is completely covered, too, and becomes a vast carpet of images. The site has reopened its doors with the show “Gauguin - Van Gogh, painters of colour,” created by Gianfranco Iannuzzi with Renato Gatto and Massimiliano Siccardi.

Watching an audio-visual show on paintings by well-known artists in a space of an old quarry buried in a mountain was certainly unusual and exciting.More

It's a nice and cool hideaway from the summer heat where you can see famous paintings projected on the walls of an underground quarry, animated and played to some good music like Stairway to Heaven. Some of the graphics seemed a bit scary to our...More

The famous French ‘son et lumière’ brought to perfection. This time the show is based on paintings of Hieronymus Bosch, the Brueghels and Arcimbaldo. A must-see which we visited on January 1.

This was an optional tour from our river cruise and we're ever so glad we chose it. I would have spent all day inside, but we had to follow the group to the touristy village shops. Stupendous & unique!

This light show set in this very unusual setting within an old quarry is not to be missed. Every year it changes but hands up to the producers and technicians of this highly imaginative way to showcase Art and Music. Bravo!!!

I do not know if the exhibitions ever move to another location. I like the idea though.
