Charming plaza at center of historic district. I was fortunate to visit when a farmers market occupied the square (2nd Friday in March, not sure if it's a regular event). Excellent cheeses, meats, bakery items, arts and crafts, food for sale, and a live brass band. Teaming with locals and tourists in the evenings. Plan on walking or biking to... More

Great range of restaurants, beautiful buildings and a lovely place to watch the world go by. We found a lovely restaurant around the edge to try the local cassoulet and wine at a very fair price .

Magical square with buzzing atmosphere day and night. Loads of cafe's and restaurants lined around the edges of the square which you can sit and have a drink or something to eat and watch the world go by. There were a couple of markets on in the square when we visited which was nice to look around.

The Place du Capitole is nice, though it is not as grand as others in France. It is surrounded by restaurants and a very large shopping area. It is definitely not a destination for which to travel, but it still is nice to see.
