Stroll the banks of Canal de Brienne (Le), also known as the "Canal de Saint-Pierre." The canal connects the Garonne River with the Canal du Midi and the Canal de Garonne. You'll notice one lock at the Ecluse Saint-Pierre that opens to the Garonne, and another near the Canal du Midi, which usually remains open. The canal runs 1,560 m (0.97 mi), starting at Bazacle on the Garonne, and ending at the basin where it meets Canal du Midi.

  • When the sun shines can walk here quietly. It is a quiet place with several benches to linger. By the way, you are always fast back downtown.

  • The section where it connects with the Garonne River is quite picturesque. The twin locks are still operational. When we were on the riverboat tour, we saw them being manually operated - love the engineering details. There is a pleasant canalside walk that leads to a new section of the Universite Toulouse 1 Capitole - Manufacture des Tabacs :: forrmerly a tobacco factory, the adaptive re-use strategy for this building is interesting. .. worth exploring. Should you want to take a break, there are several coffee places on Boulevard Marechal Leclerc, opposite the University entrance
  • Super channel in the city center!
