The Canal du Midi is a French canal which connects the Garonne River to the Mediterranean Sea. It was originally named the Canal Royal en Languedoc but the French revolutionaries renamed it to Canal du Midi in 1789. It was considered at the time to be one of the greatest construction works of the 17th century.
With the side channel following the Garonne River, the Canal du midi also forms the Canal des Deux Mers, a navigable waterway joining the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. Later, the canal was extended by the canal du Rhône in Sète.
