NOT just another colored lights on a cathedral wall - this is amazing. Takes place in a courtyard so there is surround vision and sound. Beside the WOW factor, art and music, it tells the history visually and in French narration. If you have a little French you will catch many words because it is a professional announcer who enunciates... More

Very intersting and impressive story of Avignon history. My poor French did not let me to understand all words, but I know the subject and the show is breathtaking. A few chairs would make to show more convenient for those ones who is old or cannot stand all 40 minutes.

We were spending a couple of days in Avignon during our very good 2 week tour of France with Gate 1 Travel and saw the advertisements for this light show. Really didn't know what to expect but we had some free time one evening and...why not? What we saw was spectacular. The technology and artistry using the architectural features of... More

Even though it was in French it was a spectacular show of digital technology. I'd spend a few extra euros for an English audio.

Breathtaking sound and light show in a historic setting. Well worth the price. Only criticism is the narration is strictly in French so I felt I didn't get the full historic impact although the visuals did help fill in the blanks due to my spotty french

This cave is in Les Baux - an absolutely charming medieval village not to be missed. The cave flashes paintings (this year was Klim) on the cave walls and plays classical music. A most unusual experience. We loved it

Absolutely breath-taking! It did not matter that I speak not a bit of French. This was a highlight of our time in Avignon.

Stunning light and sound display, really imaginative presentation of Avignon's history and clever use of the space in the courtyard of the Palais des Papes.

I had seen the pictures and read the reviews but I was still blown away by the experience. The combination of the sound and the imagery makes it an experience you have to do in person, it's hard to give justice to describing it. Just when I thought that was the best image, even better appear. I wish they had... More

This was a delightful show with fantastic music and light presentations showing the history of Avignon. Although we don't speak French, we could mostly follow what was going on, and we were mesmerised! Don't miss it!
