Arixo or modernity at culture's service

 

Espace muséographique Arixo Loudenvielle LouronArixo is a very anachronistic cinema and museographic space located in the village of Loudenvielle.

An old restored farm provides space for the innovative museum where you can discover the latest novelties on the 7th art (in cooperation with cinema Parvis 65).
It is a very cozy construction made of stone, wood and slate. History and technology come together in this unique space. Approach the history of this region through interactive platforms.

 

Thanks to the arrangements carried out in the premises you can get to know more about the patrimony in both a comprehensive and amusing way. There is a place devoted to religious art, since there is a great presence of Romanesque churches all over the valley; an ethnologic room showing these peoples’ routine, the knowledge, the houses… and a more intimate vision brought by the Italian theatre that plays the part of a family at the end of the 19th century.

Patrimony room:

*The valleys of Louron and Bareilles consist of about 20 villages and a great number of churches. Interactive terminals will help you learn about them through pictures and comments.
*There are not just the models of the valley and the villages, but you will find statues and mural paintings reproductions that decorate churches such as “Adam and Eve” (16th century) in Anéran or “The final judgment” (16th century) in Vielle-Louron.
*The Italian theatre: at the end of the 19th century, the young people from Louron came back from Spain through the path of Clarabide. Memories of the hydroelectric works in the lake of Caillaouas.
 

Mountain and nature exhibition

*The natural resources of the valley, how to treat the stone and the wood, the tools, the knowledge… a beautiful functional house.
*Homage to anonym craftsmen and artists from the valley.
 

Here you will also find: temporary exhibitions, games for cultural purposes, evening of stories, debates, pieces of work about the valleys and their history, shows, cinema…
