Wherever you go, on your way back, you see this place. In the morning we saw people waltzing here :) There is a big cross on the ground surrounded by horoscopes. And the place is surrounded by many cafes. You can have a drink with a dessert and watch people passing by.

It was a really nice place and it would be good for lunch however as we were just passing through we wanted to see as much as we could in the time we had. Most of the Place du Capitole was blocked off by what I think was the Christmas market being set up so I didn't get to see... More

The Place du Capitole is a beautiful building which stands on one side of a large square in the centre of Toulouse. There are restaurants on the other three sides with outside tables.

Toulouse's Plaza Mayor. Nice. Bit touristy though, and the lesser educated (let's call them) locals seem to hang ou there. Still an aesthetic gem , as is the rest of central TLS

We went during a Nepalese fundraising event back in May. The square was full of singing and dancing, great food and things to buy. The government building was magnificent to see.

It is interesting open space. I went there early sunday morning and there were a few artists doing their tricks. Most of the shops were closed and it was pretty quite. Not very exciting.

This is a pretty, open square surrounded by cafes and businesses. I didn't have a chance to go into the building.
