The Canal of two seas

> Voix du midi (June 2011)

The Canal de Garonne links the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The region of Tarn-et-Garonne is criss-crossed by three waterways: The Aveyron and the Tarn join just a few miles from Lafrançaise before bursting into the Garonne at Saint-Nicolas-de-la-Grave. They offer the opportunity to discover some astonishing and unique characteristics of the river landscape, such as the Cacor aqueduct, which allows boats to cross the Tarn, and the Montech water slope.

These canals make for magnificent rides along the river. At Tarn-et-Garonne, whether floating along on a barge or a boat, you will uncover a number of remarkable manmade structures, as well as a region full of undeniable charm: the Saint-Jacques swing ridge at Moissac, the lockkeepers’ cabins, the Castelsarrasin, Montauban and Valence d’Agen ports, and others besides. Several packages are available: cultural, touristic and guided cruises, discovery tours, boat hire, etc.
