Create an itinerary including Le Capitole
Some of the interior of Le Capitole can be traced to the 16th century, but the current Neoclassical façade dates back to 1750. Made of pink marble and 135 m (443 ft) long, it boasts eight columns that represent the original eight capitals of the 16th century. In 1873, Eugène Viollet-le-Duc built the bell tower on top of the donjon or inner tower, in the typical northern French style. Only the Henri IV courtyard and gate survive from the original medieval buildings. Today the building houses the city hall, as well as an opera company and a symphony orchestra.

  • Really very nice place in Toulouse city center. Nice building and beautiful touristic place. For summer and winter you can stay there.
  • I love this square, it's amazing! The capitole dominates the square fully on one side of it in all its length. The other 3 sides are made of buildings built with the classic original pink brick. The square host a market during the morning and its stunning at night!
  • Very impressed by the design and artwork of this place. It was a complete surprise on the inside. So much beauty and it's free!!! I highly recommend a stop by here. This is a can't miss stop if you come to this city.
  • Great place for tourists to check out while in Toulouse. Entry is free. See beautifully painted walls and ceilings as well as statues of Venus and more. Take the little tram outside for a little tour of the city area. Definitely worth checking out when you go to Toulouse.
  • Very impressive place. It's a must see un Toulouse!
