A spectacular son et lumiere experience in the beautiful old town of Le Mans. A fanastical assault on the senses.

Absolutely brilliant. Easy walk around the old city to see the beautiful and creative light shows on various buildings and locations. You can walk it easily or take the “train” tour that goes from site to site.

I have visited the Cathedral many times but this is the first visit to 'La Nuit des Chimeres'. The display is stunning and adds to the beauty of the old town.

The lights on different sides of the cathedral and the illuminations on the roman walls are absolutely spectacular and engrossing in the warm night air. It is hard to come away, could be there all night watching. Really beautiful

A charming idea - light shows projected, with and without sound, in various locations around the Plantegenet City. Enthralling!

Check dates but certainly every night in August, come and marvel at a very professional lightshow on city walls and buildings. NB Most restaurants are closed on Mondays.

Unexpected and wonderful evening, though wish I had done some research before we stumbled on it as no idea what it was about to explain to kids.. Cathedral show was amazing.

It was a late night for the children as if didn't start until 10pm. But it was well worth it. The Roman wall and north side of the cathedral were the better displays. A bit surreal in places, but definitely entertaining.

An entertaining original light show. Start early enough to wander the old streets and see the displays. I wish we had more time to see all the projections and visit longer. Le Mans gem.

Lovely thing to visit after a dinner, just a shame it was raining and we couldn't see more! A great way to explore an alternative Le Mans

Thank Lisa H
