  • In the footsteps of Pierre-Paul RIQUET, the inventor of the Canal du Midi. From the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, the Canal du Midi is one of the most fabulous monuments that man has ever built.

    The former "Maison de l’Ingéneiur” (Engineer’s house) is located at the foot of the Saint-Ferréol dam, in an exceptional environment, as a museographic space dedicated to the Canal du Midi and its ingenious designer, Pierre-Paul RIQUET. Displayed in an area of over 8600 feet², with models, audiovisual devices, as well as archival documents telling the fabulous story of this major work now listed among UNESCO’s World Heritage sites. Organized around six thematic rooms, the itinerary is set up to be both lively and educational about the origins and the context of the construction of the Canal, the work required, technical innovations, the daily life of the Canal and its landscapes.
