Cruising the Canal du Midi between Sallèles d’Aude and Trèbes
The Canal du Midi in the South of France is a cultural cornucopia with annual events and festivities close by that highlight the region’s rich historical legacy.
For example, one day of Enchanté's interesting itinerary features a tour of Lagrasse, a village with an 8th-century Benedictine abbey and many artisan workshops. Its narrow streets and medieval bridges have earned it the title of “one of the most beautiful villages in France.” The abbey, St Marie d'Orbieu, was founded in 799 with a founding charter from Charlemagne and, situated near the border of Spain and France, it quickly became one of the most important abbeys in southern France, being pivotal in the politics and religious affairs of the region. Lagrasse also enjoys a strong literary tradition and is home to Le Banquet du Livre, ”Banquet of the Books,” a literary festival that boasts philosophical meetings with writers and thinkers, readings of texts and musical pieces by talented authors, as well as literary workshops and film screenings.
