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.

    Very beautiful and worth a visit if you are near Moissac. Situated a little distance out of town, but accessible on foot along the canal, which is a beautiful walk under plane trees  more »
