In the year 1802, Sait Martin Canal, wasn’t the only Canal to be constructed in the city. At that time the city was in the growing phase and the efforts were put in order to make it as contemporary as possible. In the time period of two decades, three canals were built in the City. They were not just any normal Canals. They were extremely lengthy and if we sum up the length of all three canals, it was more than 80 miles. Shocker, right?
The Canal Saint Martin was the most famous one among all because, it connected 68 mile canal de I’Ourcq with the river Seine. The vision of Napoleon worked and these canals proved to be beneficial for the city.
