Cruising the Canal Lateral at Montech, most famous for the water slope (Pente-d’eau) ,but curing through the five locks beside it is one of the most beautiful stretches along the canal.

Flanked on both sides by beautiful Plane trees, that we’re planted originally to keep the sun of the horses that used to pull the barges along the canal.They create amazing light on the canal & create great shadows in the water. image


The Rosa passing through some locks at Montech & under a low bridge exiting the lock, the  pilot has to be precise as we have about half a metre to spare at either side in these locks.











The Rosa ready to leave a lock & the being expertly guided to the next lock, showing just how snugly she fits into these locks.
