Canal Du Midi, Carcassonne Reviews
Stunning piece of engineering by Pierre Paul Riquet 3 centuries ago and still working perfectly. Originally built to facilitate commerce by barges it was superseded by the railway and was falling into misuse until it was 'discovered' by English yachtsmen, the word spread of its tranquillity and beauty and it now enjoys a new lease of life as a leisure waterway catering for thousands of happy people who hire a cabin cruiser for their holidays. Bikers and walkers also enjoy the canal from the towpath.
Quite interesting engineering marvel though some parts of tow path not being maintained.
Beautiful countryside and superb engineering!
It is not a place but a canal from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic! Built in the beginning of the 16th century.
By bike it's the perfect holiday adventure
