Canal du Midi

Enjoyment and precious buildings.

60.000 trees have been planted along Canal du Midi in France to affix the bank. Until today many trees are seaming the waterway which leads from Toulouse to the Mediterranean Sea. The trees also shade the tow paths and roads which are leading during this journey to the numerous cultural monuments: to cathedrals and palaces, to roman and medieval buildings. Besides richness of culture there are also culinary delicacies located at Canal du Midi. Great wine is growing and wonderful cuisine has its origin here. Enjoyment is tradition.

Itinerary

Welcome briefing and distribution of rental bikes (if booked).

Many buildings are built with red bricks in Toulouse, therefore this city is also named “ville rose”. A wonderful place of interest is the basilica St. Sernin de Toulouse. A culinary delicacy is the duck breast with green beans.

You cycle to water reservoir St. Férról. The clear water and sandy beaches as well as paddleboats, canoes and catamarans are inviting you to a wonderful day at the beach.

Carcassonne free disposal or a round trip to Montolieu. There are 15 antique stores with over 200.000 books in the worth seeing city of book “Montagnes Noires”. The former royal textile manufacturing was declared to a National Monument in 2004.

Enjoy of the most scenic parts of your journey alongside the Canal de la Robine and the Canal du Midi. Villages, wine-growing estates and vineyards are located pictorially around the waterways. You reach Olonzac. You will have the chance to taste some good wines.

You cycle to Capestang and on to Narbonne with its impressing buildings as the palace and cathedral Saint Just.

Béziers is the goal of today. The city is the centre of winegrowing und birth place of Paul Riquet, the builder of Canal du Midi.

You start your tour of today in the port and fishermen-town Sète, where the Canal du Midi flows into the Mediterranean Sea. The town is surrounded by water and its surname is “Venice des Languedoc“. The reasons for this surname are beneath the Canal du Midi countless additional waterways, which cross the town. Your cycling alongside the Canal du Midi leads you past masterpieces of engineering like the lock of Agde. It is the only round lock of the Canal du Midi and was built with volcanic rock. The basic measurements of the lock are 29.90 metres diameter and 5.20 metres depth. Cap d´Agde at the Mediterranean Sea is your destination today. The biggest European marina is part of the French town Agde and a paradise for water sportsmen like divers, surfers or sailors. But people, who just want to bath and to rest at the beach, get their money‘s worth too.

The "modern" Sète was built in the middle of the 17th century by Paul Riquet so that his Canal du Midi would have a port on the Mediterranean. There were Romans here, naming this Mons Setius some 17 centuries earlier, and pirates were ensconsced on Mont Saint-Clair in the 16th century. But it was Riquet's new "Port-Saint-Louis-du-Cap-de-Cette" that became the seaside and canal town of today.
