Petit Futé's opinion on THE NINE FONSERANE LOCKS
The 9 locks of Fonséranes, true marvels of civil engineering unique in the world, are an exceptional site classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Historic Monuments. A major structure of the Canal du Midi created by Pierre-Paul Riquet, it comprises eight ovoid-shaped basins and nine gates that allow you to cross a difference in level of up to 21.6 metres over a length of more than 300 metres. Today, only seven of its locks are still in service.
