Canal du Midi

Unesco site since 1996

Work of Pierre-Paul Riquet carried out in the XVIIth century to connect the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, the Canal du Midi formerly used for the transport of goods and people, is today frequented by many boaters and tourists and crosses the heart of the city of Carcassonne. Since 1996, the Canal du Midi has been classified in the list of world heritage by UNESCO. Locks, bridges, aqueducts, canal bridges that cover the 240 km of waterway, bear witness both to a technical feat but also to a work of art.
