You might feel as if you are in an Indiana Jones adventure.

The temples of humankind in Damanhur (Italy) have meaning as a spiritual journey within the self.

All temples were hand dug out, not caves, within the Piedmont alps.

Each underground temple represents a journey through the elements.

The labyrinth ( photo) is the ideal representation of all the divinities of the world throughout history.

The relationship between divinity and humanity seems to be the key for exploring the meaning of the Labyrinth.

Open the door to artistic leaded glass, where four snakes- symbol of energy that becomes knowledge wrap around each other.

There is a theme of transformation that takes place through movement. The physical movement accompanies inner and energetic movement.

Nestled in the alpine foothills north of Piedmont, Italy, between Turin and Aosta, is a truly magical place on earth called Damanhur. 

Damanhur was founded in 1975 from the inspiration of Falco Tarassaco, né Oberto Airaudi (1950-2013). His enlightened and pragmatic vision created a fertile reality based on solidarity, sharing, love and respect for the environment.

As a result, Damanhur has slowly expanded into a United Nations award-winning sustainable eco-community

Damanhur is perhaps best known for its extraordinary subterranean work of art and architecture, a cathedral known as the Temples of Humankind. It has been profiled on international television as the "Eighth Wonder of The World." This complex was entirely dug by hand into the heart of the mountain. Decorated with mosaics, stained glass, sculptures, wall paintings and other works of art, it is dedicated to the awakening the divine spark present in every human being.

The culinary culture of Provence in Southern France, has a very distinct gastronomy compared to the north and central France.

Provence is rightly fabled for its food, from simply tomatoes and olive oil, to signature dishes like bouillabaisse

Thanks to a mild climate and an unrivaled location that allows its inhabitants to enjoy fresh fish, meats, fruit and vegetables throughout the year – and let’s not forget the influence of other countries around the Mediterranean Sea – the culinary possibilities in Provence are endless.
