Goudargues Canal

We've seen Goudargues mentioned as the "Venice of the Gard". This is probably an exageration, but the town does have a large canal flowing through the center.

Where the canal enters the town it's very wide and arranged as a mini waterland, with water flora, ducks, swans and fish.

The canal pass then passes through the very center of town, lined with café-restaurant terraces on both sides, small bridges crossing, and the the main road and a shopping street outside the terraces. A double line of huge platans provide excellent shade, and lovely reflections in the water.

On the downstream side, the canal widens into a very large basin (or small rectangular lake), complete with swans. A "lake-side" restaurant at the end of the basin is a very lovely place for dining.
