    A value clearly to the disadvantage of the tourist. In the end a very large room only dive in the dark with projected works overlooking a few exteriors which you have made the turn in 30 min by walking slowly. Add to the price of admission those announced consumption and you will feel much lighter on and off but not necessarily satisfied. Nice concept but clearly not at the price it deserves.

    What beautiful cultural operations carried out in these old quarries of leases! Culture spaces has done a remarkable job to highlight these careers: selected Classic painters are rediscovered with joy by everyone, whatever their age! We literally enters the tables and their details are exploited with talent! Do not miss. Get there early to avoid the crowds in the summer!

    A sublime space that allows to discover art in a different way. Beautiful staging. An original concept in an unusual place.

    The absolute must-visit in Provence! A very simple idea of projecting images on empty walls is actually perfectly executed creating a fantastic show. We spent two hours wondering around and absolutely enjoying it. We would love to come back again!

    Spectacular immersive experience of sound and light. This is one of the most incredible places I have ever visited in my whole life. The scale of the show is perfect - you feel that you are in the paintings themselves or that you are the artist looking out over the rooftops you are painting. It is partially animated - they do subtle things like make snow fall, or night fall, or angels ascend, keeping the flavour of the original paintings and not Disneyfying it, while making it an experience that is filled with magic. Incredibly creative. An absolute must see and enjoyable for the whole family.

    Words can't do it justice. Must visit if you are anywhere remotely nearby. Worth the trip with les baux nearby as a great bonus stop.

    This is amazing, it's like a giant Cinema in a giant cave with moving images all over the surfaces, on the walls and on the floors. Unforgettable experience.

    Must see when in the area, been going for the last 3 years, every year, to see the latest creation. Whether you are into art or not, it doesn't matter, the entire experience is a wonderful way to get to discover art, I will continue going for many more years to go. You will not regret a visit here.
