Canal du Midi

The Canal du Midi is a 240km long canal in France, linking the Garonne River to the Mediterranean Sea (between Toulouse and Sète[?]).

It forms, with the Canal Latéral à la Garonne[?], a waterway (the Canal des Deux Mers[?]) between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.

It was built in the 17th century under the supervision of Pierre Paul Riquet[?].

The Canal du Midi is on the UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites since 1996.
