Pont Canal, Moissac

Admire Pont Canal, an architectural marvel that allows the Canal de Garonne to cross the River Tarn without the two waterways ever meeting. Built for commercial transport of goods, the canal helps to link the Mediterranean Sea with the Atlantic Ocean. Hire a charter service in town to bring you across the water via the 356 m (1,168 ft) bridge, built in 1867 and one of the longest in the country, or you can drive to the base for a look at the 15 arches from below. Climb the steps for a closer look. From above, you can see boats drive into the lock, and watch the water level rise and fall, allowing boats to go up or downstream.

  • You can park his vehicle just down the bridge or starting from the uvarium the well shaded Canal. In the summer you can see the barges and pleasure boats through the gates of the lock! Family children are excited

  • We quite accidentally found out about this bridge already arriving in Moissac. First we wanted to tonight to go on foot from the city centre, but realized that it's pretty far. In the morning, leaving the city, pulled up to the bridge. There is a parking. Other cars in the parking lot was not. The spectacle terrific! The channel itself is beautiful and the view from it. Go! You will not regret!
