awesome show , we walked around the town to look at the lights and was just brilliant, but the pictures could be scary for younger kids.

We witnessed the light show in the evening and it is amazing when they project a story of the building This leads you into the old town so well worth the visit!

We came across this by accident, but it was breathtakingly beautiful! Make sure you see the back and front of the cathedral, and don't miss the Roman Walls.

If you want a great night out, then there's nothing better than wandering around the old city with a brilliant array of light shows projected onto the cathedral, the city walls and other places - splendid, fascinating, funny, just go!

Le Mans is a wonderful town with lots to do and lots to see but it is definitely worth visiting in the summer to enjoy this light show like no other.

Never seen anything as spectacular as this incredible free light show. Well worth waiting until darkness falls - bring a folding stool if you can't stand for a long time.

The light show combines modern technology with the many fine buildings in this beautiful city. If you arrive by day then stay awhile and seethes brilliant show.

Fantastic lights, however not to music. Seemed to be on a 20 minute loop. Worth a watch if you're in the area for 20-30 minutes.
