A priceless heritage

The only civil engineering structure of its kind, the canal du Midi constitutes an exceptional heritage with which each and every one of us shares a history.


As a hotspot for river tourism, the canal also represents a major economic force for the regions it crosses.


For a number of years, the plane trees, which are emblematic of the canal, have been being attacked by coloured canker. Find out how the fungus is threatening this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
