Biggest disappointment. Sold as a village and saw churches. Sold as a light show and saw a few spotlights. Not knocking the skill involved in creating the pieces, but at the price of 32euros for a family of 4, I would hope for so much...More

We visited Pierre et Lumiere with our 10 yo son and all of us found it a nice experience. It is unbelievable that inside the caves of the troglodyte environment, there was an artist who had the inspiration to sculpture all local churches and landmarks...More

Very well presented carvings of some well known and some less well known churches and other local buildings of note. A pleasant interlude if in Saumur as quite close. Continue along the Loire towards Angers to see some lovely villages and views.

great experience with loads of information in English as well - we bought our ticket when we visited the mushroom caves nextdoor. The young girl in the ticket office was very helpful and interested in where we were from.

The person carved local stones and recreated local architectural beauties. I really enjoyed the lighting provided to the works. It gives life and a special mood to these beauties. Amazing really!
