Geocache Description:


Français : Cette cache fait partie de l'Event Aperocache 2007.

Deux parkings sont disponibles (PK1 et PK2). Votre visite vous permettra de vous promener le long du canal de Carpentras - (Canal de Carpentras 1/2).

Louis Giraud, maire de Pernes et conseiller général, avec les ingénieurs Conte et Perrier mènera ce projet dés 1849.

Le canal est financé par souscriptions, mais celles-ci n’aboutissant pas, Louis giraud fait voter en 1851, un impot exceptionnel de deux centimes.

Les terres irriguées doublent de surface - Le fonctionnement se faisant par gravité, il valait mieux être du “bon coté” du canal - d’où d’âpres négociations sur le tracé.

Finalement, le canal est achevé en 1857, permettant aux vergers du Vaucluse d’être parmi les premiers en France .

Pour d’autres informations sur ce canal, vous pouvez consulter: “12 Juillet 1857”.

Ne pas laisser de valeurs dans votre véhicule. En été, prévoyez eau et chapeau

The canal is financed by subscriptions, but these not succeeding, Louis giraud makes vote in 1851, an exceptional two-centime impot.

The irrigated lands double of surface - The functioning being made by gravity, it was better to be of the “highly-rated side" of the canal - so bitter negotiations about its plan...

Finally, the canal is finished in 1857, allowing the orchards of Vaucluse to be among the first ones in France.
