Canal Saint-Martin (3)

Formerly carrying only commercial traffic, the Canal Saint-Martin presents lovers of the capital with an urban landscape unlike any other. With its nine locks, its two swing bridges, its Eiffel-style footbridges, its mysterious vaulted tunnels and its ancient trees, the canal offers an opportunity for strollers to rediscover the Paris of an earlier age.

A cruise on the Seine River and Canal Saint-Martin will take you directly to Orsay Museum from Bassin de La Villette taking in the Tuileries garden, Louvre, Ile de la Cité and Notre-Dame, then to Canal Saint Martin with a view, among others , of the Hôtel du Nord. (tourisme93)

Canal Saint-Martin (2)

Construction of the canal was ordered by Napoleon I in 1802, in order to create an artificial waterway for supplying Paris with fresh water. The water diverted from the river Ourcq would support a growing population and help avoid diseases such as dysentery and cholera, also supplying fountains and allowing the streets to be cleaned.
