Transporting Visitors to the Heart of the Experience
AURA INVALIDES is an immersive, nighttime tour structured by three main movements that evoke the monument’s core elements: creation, memories, and universal elevation.
Each movement provides you time for active exploration to discover the site’s many facets, join in an act of collective contemplation, and tap into the emotions it inspires.

First Movement: Creation
The first movement is a mysterious revelation that evokes the Dome’s construction, the harmony of its proportions, and the ingenuity of its architecture.

Second Movement: Collective Memory
The second movement evokes the monument’s collective memory. By encountering a variety of fragmented stories that encapsulate the richness and permanence of its animated memories, you are instilled with the sensation of traveling through time.

Third Movement: Universal Elevation
The third movement is a unifying celebration of the “here and now”. This visually-stunning, multisensorial moment invites you to let go and immerse yourselves in scenes inspired by the spirit of the site. Elevated by the aura of the Dôme des Invalides, you forge new connections with the monument.
