Canal du Midi - A UNESCO World Heritage Site

Between 1666 to 1681, Pierre Paul Riquet financed and built the Canal du Midi, to connect the Atlantic Ocean with the Mediterranean Sea. A marvel of medieval engineering.

THIS is what peace looks like - just a few hundred years ago, till as recent as WWII, this land witnessed war after war, built and rebuilt castles, forts, churches, endured so much - a beautiful gift to us, from the past.
