Landmark Tourist Spot
Some of the interior of Place du 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. Put Place du Capitole and other Toulouse attractions into our Toulouse vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beautiful square, there are open markets at several periods in the year. Nice restaurants on one side and a great ice-cream bar.
  • Lovely city center square. Place for music concerts. A good place for a evening walk.
  • Nice big square in the centre of Toulouse. The Capitole is really nice. There are few bars where you can sit and enjoy a drink looking at the square
  • Beautiful area with lots of options for restaurants. Get a bit out of the center for more reasonable pricing
  • Large square with many good restaurants and shops surrounding it. On special occasions there is also entertainment in the square
