Canal-du-Midi Wheelchair Accessible Tours

The construction of a canal connecting the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean is an ancient dream of numerous emperors such as Augustus, Nero, Charlemagne and several kings of France, including François Ier.

But it was only during the reign of Louis XIV that the project to unite the two coasts of Southern France became a reality, thanks to a skilled engineer, Pierre-Paul Riquet.

With his tenacity he completed the crazy idea of ​​creating and feeding a large artificial canal connecting the Garonne River to the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean with the technical means of the XVII century.

103 locks are used to overcome a total height difference of 190 meters.

The waterway is 240 kilometers long, reaches a width of up to 15-20 meters and a depth of 2.
