Discovery area of ??the Canal du Midi

Located at the heart of the black mountain, the Saint-Ferréol dam has been the center of the Canal du Midi's water supply system since the end of the 17th century. It is there, at the bottom of the dike, in the old Engineer's House, that the Museum & Gardens of the Canal du Midi is located, offering visitors a unique look at the history and life of the place.
