Fonsérannes

Before arriving in Béziers, the Canal du Midi must cross a vertical drop of 21.5 meters. Inorder to do thiss, 9 locks were built in Fonsérannes to lead the Canal du Midi on over 300 meters, down to the bitteroise city. This true architectural feat has since then become a popular tourist destination. It is the third site visited in the Languedoc-Roussillon after Carcassonne and the Pont du Gard.
