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. « less

A fantastic exhibition, well worth the 10 Euros. You could stay there for hours and not see it all. It is total immersion in the art. Moving images of the pictures skillfully blended together with a soundtrack that brings it to life. 30 foot projections covering the pillars of the limestone workings and the floor give an incredible feeling intimacy...

I'd been talked to about it, given brochures to read and photos to look at and to be honest I was very sceptical and not at all enthusiastic going out of the warm sun into the cold mountain(take a sweater with you!). But it was fantastic! Stand in one spot or wander around, whatever you prefer, you won't miss a... More

Impressive art and co-ordinated music.... 10 Euro's entry fee, well worth it. Does get a little chilly in the caves so its a good idea to take one with you,

OK, I thought this was going to be a bit naff, and wasn't overly keen ( the French seem to really love this projection on walls thing they have loads). However I am really glad we went as it was a truly fantastic experience. I believe they do a different show every year, Klimt's art really suits the show and... More

what a lot of emotion for 10euros! this was an incredible experience. we arrived at 9:30 and so it was relatively quiet, very small queue etc, (later in the day it becomes extremely busy, as does the entire area around les baux). breathtaking images, atmosphere and music. a real triumph and a perfect use of such a cavernous and blank...

An amazing experience, walking into a mountain and watching a light show on every nook and cranny of the interior walls. We saw the pictures and history of the painter Klimpt.

The reviews do not do adequately describe the experience. The use of modern technology is amazing. The image and sound coordination is remarkable. Standing at the end of main hall gives the greatest impact. Do not miss.

This is well worth the trip - dramatic and beautiful. Very children friendly but keep an eye on them as it can get rather dark!

The show is about an hour. The music and the movement complement the paintings very well. You may stand at any point yet the best views are from lifted area (need to stand there) or from the corner under it (you may sit there on the rocks - just bring with you something to put underneath (paper or plastic bag,...

I was lucky as one of the artists displayed this year was Klimt, my favorite! The mix of artworks, ambience and light effects is incredible!
