The Baux-de-Provence and the carrières de Lumières

Located in the heart of the Alpilles, the hilltop village of Les Baux-de-Provence and the Carrières de Lumières proudly boast a strong cultural and heritage identity. A must for your stay in Provence!

To begin with, the village of Les Baux-de-Provence, built on a rocky outcrop. Overlooking the sumptuous landscapes of the Alpilles, where vineyards and olive groves follow one another as far as the eye can see, it tells its own story to every visitor who sets foot on its cobblestones.

The medieval town and the remains of the castle take you back in time. Everyone starts dreaming of what life was like before, in the Middle Ages. A history-laden discovery that will delight the whole family.

Then, just a few minutes from the town, you’ll find another Alpilles landmark: the Carrières de Lumières. Former limestone quarries, this impressive site, standing at a height of 14 meters, now hosts digital exhibitions showcasing the Grand Masters of painting. The works of Dali, Gaudi, Van Gogh… follow one another here during digital shows, each more sublime than the last!

An original and unique experience that allows a wide audience to discover art in a different way.
