We were walking by when the light show started, and we were mesmerized. We enjoyed it so much we even went back the next evening to see it again!

Definitely worth your time; I've never seen anything quite like this light show. Inexpensive, and there has clearly been a lot of time and effort dedicated to making this show very impressive.

Though originally organized to last for the months of August & September 2013, we were privileged to view this free fascinating embroidery of colorful images and music at the end of November. Projected on the high walls of the old Citadel of the Popes were spectacular images of fantasy and mythology, which moved and morphed along with the music. Very... More

We were sent information about Les Luminessences D'Avignon by the Avignon Tourism Bureau and immediately booked for the very reasonable price of 10euros each. We didn't know what to expect but we thought it was one of the best experiences of our trip to France. I wish I'd been prepared and read more of the history of Avignon prior to... More

We were lucky to be able to view this show as it was closing for the season a few days after we saw it. While the commentary is in French, the venue, atmosphere and show itself are well worth the price of admission and time spent. We toured the Palais du Papes before seeing this show and found that it... More

A fantastic way to experience the Papal Palace on a lovely evening. Although I do not speak French it did not detract from the essence and beauty of the story.

We bought a ticket for this when we visited the palace des Papes,which meant we had to return for the 10pm performance but we came early and had a meal first. It was very popular and took place in the external palace courtyard, and lasted about an hour. It was very interesting and quite magical even though it was only... More

Great show in the Avignon palace. Stunning visual effects. Only downside is that all narration is in French with no displayed subtitles.

In case people get excited about going to this, I just wanted to point out that it has now closed for this year.

The light show was great - the floor even shook at times. However the narration was all in French for 45 minutes, so get to know Avignon's history before hand.
