This canal is located in the centre of the 10th arrondissement of Paris. It was built in 1825. The idea was both to bring more water into the city and to provide an alternative route – water route. It is 4.5 kilometres long so there’s enough space for a long walk. Enjoy especially during sunsets.
You can take take a tour of the canal by boat, starting at the Port de l’Arsenal. A part of the canal runs in a tunnel beneath Place de la Bastille. A crypt located there holds the remains of the people who were killed in the revolution of 1830. Their names are listed on the Colonne de Juillet on the Place de la Bastille.
