PIERRE PAUL RIQUET
THE MIDI CANAL
The statue of Pierre Paul Riquet on the wide avenue (that carries his name) in the centre of Béziers
Béziers is the birthplace of Pierre Paul Riquet, the builder more than three centuries ago, (three hundred and thirty-eight years), of “The Midi Canal”, a truly magnificent engineering achievement which connects the Mediterranean to the City of Toulouse. The canal is now a paradise for cruising and leisure, and it is possible to hire a boat for the day, or dine out on a restaurant barge.
