A spectacular immersion in a breathtaking heritage building

The original soundtrack transports spectators beyond the walls of the Notre-Dame Basilica, guiding them on an unforgettable journey of discovery.

Immerse yourself in the Aura experience to discover a stunning universe presented upon one of the most sublime canvases imaginable: Notre-Dame Basilica.

" Went for the AURA experience and found: well organized event, caring staff, good COVID protocol in place, and an amazing luminous experience. "


The experience unfolds over two parts

The Immersion

You are invited into the Basilica’s nave to take part in an immersive, multisensory performance. Appearing across the Basilica’s altarpiece, walls, and vaulted ceiling, the presentation is breathtaking from all viewpoints, no matter where you are seated.

The performance transports you on a voyage to discover the heritage of the Basilica and the wonders it holds. Guided by an enchanting energy, you travel from the heart of the Basilica into the depths of its beauty. 

Illuminated Stations

You are then welcome to explore the Basilica and discover a series of illuminated stations that highlight its architectural details and artworks. The stations encourage you to take the time to connect with the historic site.

Due to the pandemic, the illuminated stations are currently not presented. The immersive multimedia experience, without the exploration of the stations, is 23 minutes long.

'' The 20-minute sound-and-light spectacle traces the arches, columns, altar and vaulted ceiling in colorful rays and uses them as canvases for projected images of lightning, shooting stars, crashing waves and autumnal leaves, all of which generate nondenominational awe. ''
