Listed a Grand Site de France, since 1996, the Canal du Midi has also been recognised as World Heritage by Unesco, which described it as “one of the most extraordinary examples of civil engineering of the modern age which paved the way to the industrial revolution”.

It constitutes not only a real technical achievement but also a work of art, given that the canal's creators were able to incorporate the structure into the very varied landscapes through which it runs.

This Canal is a lovely unhurried and quiet walk with thousands of plane trees along the banks providing shade in the heat of the day and reflections in the water. One can also discover the Canal by taking a boat trip or by hiring a boat for the day.
