UNESCO Heritage List
Visitor's Rating: (2.5 out of 4/Number of Votes:2)
With more then 300,000 visitors every year the Fonserannes locks are one of the most important tourist attraction of the Canal du Midi and a marvel of the hydro technical engineering of the 17th century.
Built in 1697 the lock complex is 300 meters long and has a difference in level of 21.50 meters.
From the initial 9 locks there are in use only 7 now.
Interesting, but Bezièrs is not so interesting!
