Historical Information


Ecluse de Castanet, 1673. Single lock (before 1977 it was a double lock).  Km 15.715.  Height: 4.98 m.  Bar/Restaurant at the lock (website) open year round.  This is the first elliptical lock you will encounter if coming from Toulouse.  An elliptical lock has walls that are curved instead of straight, a distinguishing feature of the Canal Du Midi.  This was a double lock up to 1980.  From 1977 to 1980 the downstream lock was lengthened by 10 meters, making the upriver lock redundant.
