The Canal du Midi is a phenomenal network of 240 km of navigable waterways, which links the Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea with each other through 328 artistic buildings (bridges, locks, aqueduct, tunnels, etc.)
It is one of the most remarkable achievements of civil engineering in modern times, built between 1667 and 1694. The care that its creator, Pierre-Paul Riquet, took in the design and the way it blends with the environment is an ingenious proof of art.
