Pont Canal, Moissac
(4.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit Pont Canal and other attractions in Moissac, use our Moissac family vacation planner.

  • In the light of the techniques in vogue at the time of the construction of this remarkable book, I remain impressed by the stability of the structure in time and especially its tightness!

  • the ride is worth a visit: the canal bridge passes over the river Tarn and the whole is surprising. A must see. Nice and easy access walk.

  • Beautiful bridge channel on the Tarn. In the Quercy stone and brick Toulouse, the colors are splendid at the sunset. This place exudes tranquility and is conducive to the promenade.
