At the bend of a meander stands Paraza with its majestic early XNUMXth century castle which housed Paul Riquet during the construction of the canal. Is it within these walls that he came up with the idea of ​​a canal bridge to span the Répudre?
This work of art is the first in France, built by Riquet in 1676. To get there, you have to leave the car in Paraza and drive about 1 km towards Ventenac (prefer the left bank on the towpath). The Quai de Paraza is home to several restaurants as well as the Le Clap art gallery. Other artists' studios and shops have opened their doors to the delight of art lovers and curious visitors.

At the exit of a vòlta del canal de Riquet, se quilha Parasan, amb his castle majestuós del sègle 17 have demorèt Riquet lo the time of the construction of his òbra. Benlèu what is between its parets that li venguèt the idea of ​​a canal bridge per encambar Repudre? Aqueste obratge d'art es lo mai prestigiós, lo primièr en France, bastit per Riquet en 1676. Per i arribar, vos cal daissar la véitura a Parasan et percórrer quilomètre cap à Ventenac per lo descobrir (val mai se la riba d' esquèrra que lo camin de tira). Sul cai, the art galariá Le Clap aculhís afogats e amateurs. Other talhièrs e botigas d'artistas an dobèrtas las pel mai grand bonur dels art lovers e pels visita
