The Garonne river begins in Spain as the Garona, 35 kilometers south of the French border in the Pyrénées. It is the major river of southwestern France, passing through the cities of Toulouse, Agen and Bordeaux on its path to the Atlantic Ocean. It is navigable only in the 60 kilometer section from Castets-en-Dorthe to Bordeaux. However it is closely paralleled by Canal De Garonne for 193 km from Toulouse to Castets.
