Pont Canal, Moissac

#2 of 44 in Things to do in Tarn-et-Garonne
Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

  • After I wanted to explore the town like to do a nice walk along the lock complex. Sure do! really bother!. You can be a beautiful loop walk of ± 5 km where you will see the different locks and, of course, Pont Canal. Unfortunately there is no boats sailed at that time, but still, it's nice to see. You can start with the map at the kiosk l ' Uvarium (art deco) (No. 5) and thus a loop walk along the water.
