The Source of the Midi Canal

Pierre Paul Riquet was the inspiration and creater of the Midi Canal - close by the "Hameau de Lacombe" he diverted the stream to provide the original source of water for the canal.

This "feeder" canal is called the "Rigoule de la Montagne" - it follows a winding route, following the contours, but very slowly dropping down to give a gentle flow.
