How the Carrières de Lumières is run

The owner

Located at the heart of the Alpilles on a rocky plateau, the town of Les Baux-de-Provence dominates Arles and the Camargue, and offers an exceptional panorama. A major regional memorial site with an international reputation, it boasts an exceptional historical and architectural heritage with 22 listed monuments, including the Château des Baux.

In 2011, the Municipal Council of the town of Les Baux-de-Provence has entrusted Culturespaces with the development, visitor management, cultural events and promotion of the Carrières de Lumières.
