Several hours or several days on the Canal allow you to discover the richness of this place.
The Canal du Midi
The Canal du Midi was built by Pierre-Paul Riquet in the 17th century to link the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. It was once used to transport goods and people, but is now used by many boaters and tourists and runs through the heart of the city of Carcassonne. Since 1996, the Canal du Midi has been listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The locks, bridges, aqueducts and canal bridges that run along the 240 km of waterway are a testament to both a technical feat and a work of art.
