The village of Montolieu, north-west of Carcassonne, in the Aude department, was famous in the 18th century as the place where sheets and other textiles were made for the French royal family.

The factory still exists and can be visited today, but the name of Montolieu is now more associated with the literary world. Since 1990 the town has deliberately set itself up as a “cité des livres”, uniting book-sellers, publishing houses and all the associated professions in a picturesque hillside setting.
