The Canal du Midi was classed as a Unesco World Heritage site due to its importance in canal history, the beauty of the canal and the fine locks, aqueducts and canal buildings. Though discussions on a canal link between the Atlantic and Mediterranean began with Charlamagne in the 8th century, and continued through the centuries (including consultation with Leonardo da Vinci) no actual construction began until 1666. Anyone interested in the canals history may like to visit the Château de Bonrepos and park; the home of Pierre Paul Riquet, the designer of the canal. This is located in the village of Verfeil, just outside Toulouse.
