A unique way to see and experience some of the masters. Walking through VanGogh's paintings was an experience all of its own. The quarry itself was quite impressive. A trip up the road to the town of Beaux made the day even more special It...More

One of the most amazing experiences I have had! Huge former quarry where painting are projected on to the walls, some with objects in the painting moving (such as the stars in Van Gogh's "Starry Night") with musical accompaniment. There was no waiting the day...More

While on a BackRoads Active Culinary trip in Provence we visited Carrieres des Lumieres. They were showing Van Gogh. I don't think it would matter what artist they were featuring, this is a wonderful experience.

There are Carriers des Lumieres shows about other painters but this one about Van Gogh is much more than a spectacle. Van Gogh painted in the mental hospital nearby so he has a deep connection to this part of France. If you go to the...More

We visited the carriere during a sound and lightshow with van Gogh and Japanese painitings. What a thrilling experience: one could literally walk through the various paintings of van Gogh with even the floors and ceilings coverd. Parking is not easy and there can be...More
