A small village of 600 inhabitants, Homps is an old gallo-roman village, located on the South Canal, at the edge of Minervois and the wine soil of “the Double Money”.
The small village restaurants provide delicious meals made from the produce of the surrounding countryside and are well worth visiting. The town also possesses the remains of the castle of the Malta knights and the Roman church of St. Etienne, which are both interesting and informative to see. You can also explore the Cathar city of Minerve which is surrounded by canyons.

Information :

- Possibility of transfer from the airport of Carcassonne
- The one way routes between the Rhone à Sète Canal and the Canal du Midi can be thwarted because of climatic reasons preventing the passage of the Etang de Thau.
- Passage of the Frontignan Bridge: an opening in the early morning, one in the afternoon. For timetables, contact your travel agent.

On the Rhone à Sète Canal

Over a hundred kilometers long, the Rhone à Sète Canal goes through Languedoc and the Petite Camargue to reach the edge of Provence. It is the link between the South Canal and the inland waterways of the Southeast.
The Beaucaire Canal, together with the Etangs Canal, form today what is known as the Rhone à Sète Canal which connects the Thau Lake and Sète in Beaucaire.


On the South Canal

Built in the 17th century by Pierre-Paul Riquet with his famous round locks, this canal was classified "world wonder" by the UNESCO in 1996.
A true hydrolic museum, the South Canal combines a variety of sites and cultural richness which creates a unique experience. Along the 240km from Toulouse to the Thau Lake there is 61 locks, 55 aquaducts, 7 canal bridges and 126 bridges.
