Owner description: 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.

there are many many experiences in a lifetime that can overwhelm you. this is one of them. it's a huge rock quarry. they project impressionist art on the walls and blast psychedelic music from the speakers. it really is surreal. PS don't blame me if it's not impressionism. i think they change the theme now and then. also, the sound quality is really really good. trippy. no, i wasn't smoking, hadn't smoked before, don't smoke regularly... it's just that sort of an experience, if you let it sink in and immerse yourself in it

If you are anywhere in Provence in the south of France, this show is a must. It is unique and like nothing I have ever seen. You don't need to be an art enthusiast to really enjoy it. A real visual and auditory treat.

It SOUNDS kitschy and even pretentious, but it is an astonishing experience in a wonderful and unique way. Don't wander; find a spot and stand there for three to five minutes and absorb the 360 degrees of light and music, then choose a second spot and do the same, and then choose a third spot, and so on. It's eerie, it's magical, it's compelling, even if you're not crazy about art!

We drove to Baux and went to see this show on a recommendation of our B&B owners in Provence; what can I say: amazing as well as educating; 2 "shows" were running when we visited: the first themed on nature, urbanization and space; the second (and much much better, we thought) showed famous impressionist paintings; the presentation involves sophisticated projection of the paintings on the flat, huge, 15m-tall walls of an old bauxite (interestingly, a mineral which was named after the small town of Baux-de-Provence) quarry; we were wandering the place like mesmerized zombies looking with awe at the wonderful paintings sprawling on the walls, enlarged as they were 50 times and more from their original size; it was in some ways akin to literally walking within an impressionist painting...
