It may not be the Champs-Elysées, but there is definitely something grand about this modern avenue, which was finished in the 1960s. It runs slightly uphill from the Place Wilson to the Canal du Midi and at the very top, a statue of Pierre-Paul Riquet, creator of the canal, towers over the city. There are a few handsome old buildings, and a nineteenth-century church (Nôtre-Dame des Grâces) left at the bottom of the street, and a lot of big new hotels at the other end.
