  • A remarkable work was directed by Riquet and all who have participated and worked in this gigantic project of the channel of the South. Barges rides are nice, they are commented, we're ringside to admire the functioning of closures and openings of the locks. The view of the Cathedral of Béziers is beautiful. The parking was however a rate quite high, quite negative point of the site.
