Not exactly on Allées Paul Riquet but that can be seen from the Alleys, stand a house with two caryatids that seem to figure Cérès, and another figure of Cérès stands on top of the entrance photo 1). Cérès was the Roman goddess for agriculture and crops, often connected with corn. The Canal du Midi was primarily dug for corn trade. Was that a house that had something to do with corn trade of the canal, May be but I cannot be positive.

Photo 2 shows a general view of the house.
