Eclepens - Canal d'Entreroches

The remains of a rather crazy project: linking the North Sea with the Mediterranean Sea. It is along part of this canal that you will stroll.

The Entreroches to Eclépens Canal, a navigable waterway linking the Mediterranean to the North Sea, was built between 1638 and 1648. Located in the heart of Europe, its purpose was to link Lake Neuchâtel to Lake Geneva. This canal was used for merchant shipping between Cossonay and Yverdon until 1829. He's crossing the Mormont. Near the village of Eclépens, impressive remains of the canal and the house of the smuggler remain.
