Canal du Midi

The Canal du Midi

Hiking in the shade of plane trees

The Canal du Midi, built in the 17th century to connect the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean, is a splendid construction. Its highlight are the 9 locks of Fonserannes near Béziers. These 9 locks and 8 basins bring the canal to a 21,5 metre lower level over a distance of just 300 metres. Besides this exceptional outing, the canal also offers nice trips by boat, on foot or by bike.
