The stop at the port of Agals, on the Canal du Midi is very pleasant to stroll along the Canal du Midi.
The Gardouch lock, the 1688th century bridge and the quays of the old port where colorful barges are moored constitute an interesting stopover. A little further on, you can admire the two-vaulted aqueduct over the Hers (1773) flanked by two weirs (XNUMX).
The Gardouch lock is a perfect stopover to rest during a bike ride or a boat trip.
On the Quai Riquet, the old flour mill reminds us that around 1800, Gardouch was a very important port on the Canal du Midi. It is from here that all the wheat and straw of Lauragais left to be sold in Languedoc and Toulouse.
Today, the lock is the starting point of a 7,2 km hike that will allow you to discover Gardouch and its surroundings, as well as the monument paying homage to the boatmen in the village cemetery.
