Carrières des Lumières

Discover the unique and remarkable character of the place and reveal its minerals. The quarries were dug out over the years to extract the limestone.

Masterpieces are projected onto the huge walls, pillars and floors of the quarry. They transport you to colourful worlds with music. Over a hundred video projectors project images onto more than 7,000 m² of floor space.

Each year, Carrières des Lumières offers you an extraordinary experience by immersing you in the work of great figures in modern and contemporary painting.

A unique place, a magical atmosphere and a wealth of masterpieces!
