CANAL ST MARTIN

The Canal St Martin (10th arrondissement) connects the Canal de l'Orcq to the Seine.  The canal was commissioned by Napoleon I in 1802 and was completed in 1825.  The money for the project was raised by imposing a new tax on wine.  Part of the canal runs underground between the Metro stations, Bastille and Republique.
