Carrières des Lumières

Room hire

In the heart of the Alpilles mountains and next to the village of Les Baux-de-Provence, the monumental former quarry that is now Carrières de Lumières is the venue for a concept that uses digital imagery and music for a total immersion experience through masterpieces by the world's greatest artists.

In the heart of the Alpilles range, just steps from the village of Les Baux-de-Provence, the Carrières de Lumières is the venue for shows that combine digital imagery and music, that take you on a journey through masterpieces by the great artists.
Through 14 January 2024, then again from 17 February to 14 April 2024, the total immersion experience featuring Vermeer to Van Gogh, the Dutch Masters, Mondrian, architect of colour, and on every Wednesday afternoon: Tintin, total immersion adventure.
Starting on 19 April 2024 The Carrières des Lumières take on the colours of the Orient, with immersion in Egypt at the time of the Pharaohs, from Kheops to Ramses II, for the long program, and The Orientalists, Ingres, Delacroix, Gérôme for the short program.
Enter into the magical light of the south, and enter into the history and mysteries of the Orient by exploring the journals of the European painters who traveled there.
