Fodor's Review

This vast old bauxite quarry has 66-foot-high stone walls that make a dramatic setting for a multimedia show in which thousands of images are projected onto the walls. Exhibitions change periodically, but recent showings have showcased the life and work of Monet, Renoir, and the "Renaissance Giants," Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael.
