Built in 1868 and now managed by the SICASIL, the canal of the Siagne, essential work to supply drinking water to the life area of Cannes, has always constituted at the same time a nurturing, historical, geographical and institutional link between the East Maritime Alps average countries and the sea. But it is also a great place for strolling and conviviality!
This is why David Lisnard, First Deputy Mayor of Cannes and Chairman of Sicasil, has created in 2006 – to the delight of young and old – “The Feast of the Siagne Canal”, supported by Lyonnaise des Eaux.
