The river Armonçon flows laterally alongside the canal feeding and storing water where necessary. You will also notice the towns of Montbard and the historical town of Semur en Auxois.

The Saône section of the canal

map of the southern section of the Burgundy Canal

This is the southern part of the Burgundy Canal, the water flows southeast and downstream from Pouilly en Auxois, through Dijon, to the river Saône. The River Ouche flows through the market town of Bligny-sur-Ouche and joins the canal at Pont d’Ouche. The Ouche then follows the canal down to the River Saône, water from the River Ouche is used to compensate the water supply for the canal.

The canal empties into the River Saone at Saint Jean de Losne, whilst the river Ouche joins the River Saone just a few miles to the north of Saint Jean de Losne.

The Saône River flows south and joins the River Rhone in the centre of the city of Lyon.
