Sound and light show

I've witnessed some spectacular sound and light shows - such as the Chartres Festival of Light, and last month's show at Les Invalides. But one of the most original that I've seen lately was set in a former limestone quarry near Saint Rémy de Provence. It featured the paintings of Gauguin and Van Gogh - a great follow up to our earlier visit of Van Gogh's local haunts.

It felt like we were walking inside the paintings - a surreal experience. But don't forget to take a sweater - it's cold inside! For a more complete virtual visit, click here.
