Béziers is situated along the river Orb and is also near the very end of Canal du Midi. The Cathédrale de Saint Nazaire commands a grand view over the Languedoc landscape and the famous Pont Vieux.
Béziers is the birth place for Pierre-Paul Riquet (1609-1680) to whom we owe the existence of the entire Canal du Midi. Thanks to M. Riquet for designing and creating the astonishing piece of 250 km engineering with its 91 still working locks.
Tomorrow morning we will board the train to Paris-CDG airport and be back in cool and wet Copenhagen in the evening.
Merci pour nous. Il a été un plaisir!
