Canal du Midi

Écluse de Gay sur le Canal du Midi, première mise en ligne par SebastienToulouse.

The Canal du Midi is a 240 km (150 mi) long canal in Southern France (French: le Midi).

The canal connects the Garonne River to the Étang de Thau on the Mediterranean and along with the Canal de Garonne forms the Canal des Deux Mers joining the Atlantic to the Mediterranean.

The canal runs from the city of Toulouse down to the Mediterranean port of Sète—which was founded to serve as the eastern terminus of the canal.
