In Montmorillon, if you cross the old 14th century gothic bridge over the Gartempe, you enter the medieval district of Brouard and the Cité de l'Ecrit.
Some say that this site is timeless, especially for book lovers, art lovers, collectors of rare books...
Numerous bookstores and bookstores allow this change of scenery.
There is something for everyone, from the collector to the passionate reader, from the thriller or science fiction fan to the simple walker who discovers by chance an interesting, original, unique book.
In addition, you will be able to discover passionate and exciting artists and craftsmen who will initiate you to calligraphy, illumination, painting, thanks to temporary courses, permanent workshops or as a visitor.
Many original works of art offer the possibility of gifts that cannot be found anywhere else. All year round, introductory and advanced courses are offered to groups or individuals, adults or students.
Finally, a new place, unique in France, has just opened, "The Adventure of the Typewriter and Calculator", where you can admire more than 200 models of machines, some of which are unusual and some of which are centuries old, the ancestors of today's modern computers.
This space is open free of charge from Wednesday to Sunday, in the afternoon.
To make sure you don't miss anything, go to "La Préface", the Cité's reception point, which also hosts free exhibitions on the written word.
