Built by Pierre-Paul Riquet (1604-1680) from Béziers, the Canal du Midi - originally called the royal canal of the Two Seas - which has been listed as a World Heritage Site since 1996, connects the Garonne to Etang de Thau.
Its construction took 14 years, from 1667 to 1681, and 15 000 workers were employed on this immense building site: 245km in length, 64 locks, 126 bridges including 7 aqueducts.
The nine locks at Fonsérannes are the most spectacular highpoint in this construction.
When Louis XIV decided to build the city of Sète, this site was chosen because of the Cape of Sète, which was the perfect place for a port.
Thus, the Saint-Louis jetty was built in 1666, at the same time as the work to develop the new port city. Built to preserve and develop trade in the Languedoc, the jetty had to be a safe place ensuring that the boats would be protected against dramatic changes in the weather and pirates.
