The Briare Aqueduct carries the Canal latéral à la Loire over the River Loire on its journey to the River Seine in France. It replaced a river-level crossing from the canal to meet the Briare Canal that was hazardous in times of flood. Between 1896 and 2003 it was the longest navigable aqueduct in the World until the opening of the Magdeburg Water Bridge.
At the entrance of the Pont de Canal is an amazing chocolat shop. You expect to see Juliette Binoche (see the movei Chocolat) to step out any moment. You should definitely try the home made chocolate milk made with pure chocolat (you can even choose the % purity of chocolate).
