On the Rhone à Sète Canal

Over a hundred kilometers long, the Rhone à Sète canal goes through Languedoc and the Petite Camargue to reach Provence. It is the canal of the Couth and the inland waterways of the Southeast. The Beaucaire , together with the Etangs Canal, form today what is known as the Rhone à Sète Canal which connects the Thau Lake and the 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.
