Overlooking the confluence of the River Dure and the River Alzeau, Montolieu proudly claims to be the village of books. Built of Cabardès drystone, the village boasts some twenty bookshops and dealers (some English-speaking), craftsmen specialising in graphic arts (bookbinders, copyists, calligraphers and engravers), and an interesting book museum that showcases different alphabets, writing accessories (from clay tablets to paper), printing stamps and printing presses etc.
