In the heart of Alpilles, the monumental “Carrières de Lumières” 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.

Unique experience for the whole family. Music with art works projected throughout an expansive limestone quarry/cave. Multi-sensual, an outstanding display visual, auditory and kinetic. As one walks thru the vast chamber the world comes to life, many layers and levels on the walls and floor....More

You won't have too many problems as long as the tires on the wheelchair work on a bit of a sandy floor in the exhibit.
Are there separate tickets for the Castle and the Carrieres, or is it just one ticket for both? How long is the show? Do you have to move on at the speed of the crowd or can you pause to look at things again? Many thanks, folks
