On the Rhone à Sète Canal
Over a hundred kilometers long, the Rhone à
Canal goes through Languedoc and the Petite Camargue
to reach the edge of Provence. It is the link between the South Canal and the inland waterways of the Southeast.
The Beaucaire Canal, together with the Etangs Canal, form today what is known as the Rhone à Sète Canal which connects the Thau Lake and Sète in Beaucaire.
On the South Canal
Built in the 17th century by Pierre-Paul Riquet with his famous round locks, this canal was classified "world wonder" by the UNESCO in 1996.
A true hydrolic museum, the South Canal combines a variety of sites and cultural richness which creates a unique experience. Along the 240km from Toulouse to the Thau Lake there is 61 locks, 55 aquaducts , 7 canal bridges and 126 bridges.
