This 360-km network of navigable waterways linking the Mediterranean and the Atlantic through 328 structures (locks, aqueducts, bridges, tunnels, etc.) is one of the most remarkable feats of civil engineering in modern times. Built between 1667 and 1694, it paved the way for the Industrial Revolution. The care that its creator, Pierre-Paul Riquet, took in the design and the way it blends with its surroundings turned a technical achievement into a work of art.

I must admit that I have no knowledge of butterflies - which did not stop me from a short visit to this Butterfly Park in Elne, South of France.
Enjoy the photo which was taken inside a green house (hot house) with some +35C...

I have posted many photos from this small village - not so far from the Spanish border.
colorful and charming - not least with the high season summer life down here by the shores of the Mediterranian.
Cote Vermielle starting here - changing name in Spain to Costa Brava - stretching almost to Barcelona.
2 photos stitched.
