About
In the heart of Alpilles, the monumental “Carrieres de Lumieres” host extraordinary multimedia shows which are unique in the world. 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.

Absolutely Must See!
Dec 2019
So I was there in 2014 (just couldn't state that date) when they were showing "Klimt et Vienne". I don't remember that anything before or afterwards made such a huge impression. This hard-to-call exhibition with great music of Beethoven, Staruss and Puccini. This huge space covers, surrounds you with those paintings, there's not difference between walls and floors. Even after so many years I'm still thrilled.
Then afterwards had a chance to see more mobile events like Van Gogh Alive shown in big tents or plants. They were ok. They might've even been considered great, if you hadn't have a chance to watch the show in Carrieres des Lumieres before.
When this covid-madness is finally gone, I'm gonna go there and see whatever there is to watch at the time. Sure it will be great,

You re in the middle of an old real mine and there is a brilliant show. It is really worth the trip and is great with kids as well. Music and art in a brilliant place.

We always make sure to visit the latest exhibition in these old stone quarries- each year they select a couple of complimentary artists and showcase their work in a incredible display of lights and sound. If you like art and music or have yet to be convinced do not miss it! Kids of all ages love it, adults too.

Dali & Gaudi
Jul 2020 • Couples
In the neighbourhood of Les beaux de Provence you have to visit this amazing spectacle. The entry price of 14 € for this multi media presentation with music of Pink Floyd and unique images/videos is certainly worth the value.

Salvador Dali and Pink Floyd - what a combination! So wonderful we watched it twice! Gaudi was also very good. Hoping to see David Hockney there one day - especially as he now lives in France!

Fantastic show
Sep 2019
We attending this when the Van Gogh show was running - it was a beautiful and very unusual way to enjoy the work of one of my favorite painters while hearing lovely music. A little hard to figure out the show times, but otherwise, just lots of fun.

One word - amazing
Nov 2019
This is our definitely one of the best seen, heard and felt art experiences in our life. The place, music and art installations are all amazing and you can see and feel the well known art in a different and astonishing way. If you are in the region of Provence it is a must see place.

Do not miss this!

Think of the most jaw-dropping places you have ever visited. Assuming you are sighted, I would be virtualy certain you will add this to that list. The scale is simply breathtaking and the production that shows different views whereever you look is a work of genius. The seating is deliberately limited to encourage you to walk around, so if you need to sit often you should take that into account. However there is a cafe on site and once in, you can move around the site for as long as you want.
Simply brilliant in concept and execution - I just wish we lived closer so we could go much more often.

Execellent place to stay a few hours

Impressive illuminations which can be looked at from all locations within the old sand stone mining cave. Nice place to be if it hot or cold outside... in the cave its always the same temperature.
