Cesse Aqueduct

Local namePont-canal de Cesse
LocationSallèles-d'Aude, France

Cesse Aqueduct is one of several aqueducts, or water bridge, created for the Canal du Midi. Originally, the canal crossed the Cesse on the level. Pierre-Paul Riquet, the original architect of the canal, had placed a curved dam 205 metres long and 9.10 metres high across the Cesse in order to collect water to make the crossing possible; the aqueduct replaced this dam.

The Cesse Aqueduct was designed in 1686 by Marshal Sebastien Vauban and completed in 1690 by Antoine Niquet. Master mason was John Gaudot. It has three spans, the middle being 18.3 metres and the side being 14.6 metres each. It is located in Mirepeisset, Aude, Languedoc-Roussillon, France, about one mile from the port town of Le Somail.
