Huge, brightly lit flowers and grasses have taken over the centre of the Place Bellecour, in an installation that invites visitors to stop and contemplate. Louis XIV, as the majestic "head gardener" draped in his cape of light, takes pride of place in the middle of this gigantic French formal garden, which, if you look carefully, also harbours the first light seeds of future plants.
Come and take a stroll in the peaceful and happy atmosphere created by this garden of light. Sit down for a moment for a chat at the foot of a giant peony, run through the huge grasses and explore the King's garden of curiosities, with its unusual plants. Then continue on your way through the Festival of Lights, re-energised after your break.
