The Canal du Midi maps

- Cartographie du Canal du Midi

The four detailed maps included in this package suggest you explore an incredible construction work, more than just a magnificent shaded waterway. Discrete or audacious, innovative or standardized, the aqueducts and hidden siphons, the discharge channels, the canal-bridges, the tunnels, the buildings account for how the flow of water was managed; how the tricky crossings of the wild waters were organized; and how people worked and lived on the canal and on the barges. With the current and time, these construction sites tell us about their builders’ know how and the challenges taken up by the topographers, the engineers and the architects. Your boat trips, your strolls or your bike rides will take on a different meaning and the maps of the landscape will enable you to enjoy better these moments.
