This year, we have put the finishing touches to the cave lighting, thus sublimating the Cave’s natural beauty and revealing chambers each more awe-inspiring than the last, as well as unveiling spectacular concretions that are ever more entrancing...
But this summer (from the 1st of July onwards), the Cave has yet another fabulous surprise in store for you! In the majestic Weapons Rooms, the classic tour to the Cave will be enhanced by a thrilling, brand-new, sound and light show "Origin". The show uses state-of-the art video-mapping and laser technology to make the Cave’s eventful history come to life, and was created by Luc PETIT, a magician of the scenic arts, whose numerous collaborations include world-famous names such as Franco Dragone and Disney!
A journey through time and the four elements
The site of the Domain of the Cave of Han lies at the very heart of untamed nature, and bears witness to the history of our world. Over time, the water has carved out and shaped the rocks, and the cave now boasts many mystery-laden galleries and majestic rooms. The fossils that decorate the Cave walls are a reminder of the tropical ocean that once covered our area… "Origin" – as the name suggests - immerses visitors into the origins of our universe, going back to the Big Bang, but also evokes space exploration, and invites them for a voyage into the submarine, vegetal and animal worlds...
This unique show – specially created for the Domain - will enhance the classic tour of the Cave!
