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

I wish there was a way that i could give perfect definition for this show. But there is none. If you like classical music or paintings you will love this show. If you like both, you will be stoned. Not to miss....

Only had a few hours to visit Les Baux and this was the highlight of the day. What a ingenious use of an old quarry. Make this your first stop.

I didn't know it before, but this show was the reason for my trip! Stunning images, displayed as never before. Uniquely fabulous, it puts you into the mind (and heart) of the artists...and into some future world where art is alive in each of us. GO!!

We have travelled a lot and I would say this is one of the top 10 for a unique, artistic, music experience in an awesome setting. We saw the Klimt exhibit and it was absolutely beautiful!! Words can not explain when you read 'paintings projected on cave walls'. That is what it is but so much more!! It felt like... More

Spent a wonderful hour being surrounded by the artwork projected onto the walls of this quarry with an amazing soundtrack. The experience was both stunning and emotional. We just stood back or wandered while the images engulfed us. Awesome. As they change the artists being projected we would definitely go back. Well worth a visit and was one of our... More

You cannot come to Les Baux and not visit this attraction. It is unique, beautiful and so much fun. Walk into a limestone quarry and be surrounded (literally) by great art and music. For forty minutes you are transported into the paintings that the museum is featuring currently. When we visited the art of Gustav Klimt (and a few other... More

It really is just moving images and music on walls but it is so fantastic. You feel like you have stepped into the visuals and the venue in the quarry is just one of a kind. Walk around for an hour and experience a different kind of magic. Also, cheaper than most museums and far more interesting and different, especially... More

Highly recommend this amazing engineering masterpiece. Klimt's art surrounding you and beautiful music playing as you walk through this former limestone quarry. Words can not explain how awsome it is.

Do not mss this. I was expecting some hokey light show and was instead blown away by an amazing experience. Imagine Klimt's art projected throughout a massive cave with Wagner's music in the background. I wish that I could find a way to more adequately describe this surreal and wonderful 20 minute show. Don't go in as a sceptic as... More
