Thoiry Lumières Sauvages
Until March 8, 2020, Thoiry invites you for a light-filled stroll around a gigantic odyssey of the animal world.
The “Lumières Sauvages “ fill the gardens and the park of the castle with imposing illuminated lanterns. Over 3 hectares, of a magical path, birds, dinosaurs, marine and terrestrial creatures seem to be awakening to tell you about the evolution of life on Earth. Specially designed for this event, the 600 impressive handmade and fabric creations reproduce turtles, sharks, animals coming out of Noah’s Ark or giraffes and accompany you along this enchanting journey. You can even greet King Henry IV in a reproduction of a Renaissance set inspired by period paintings, in homage to the monarch’s visit to the castle in the 16th century.
A dreamlike journey through time and the discovery of nature that will delight children and adults alike!
