There is always something happening in Place du Capitole - and it is the place to start one's exploration of this beautiful city. The buildings around it are full of interest - from the impressive Capitole building itself to restaurants like Le Bibent to the Hotel Grand Balcon (where the writer St-Exupery stayed) to the wonderful red-brick buildings of this...

Beautiful building being one side of the central square. The building is worth a visit with a lovely staircase leading up to the first floor which houses a series of paintings and rooms with ornate decoration including sculptures and busts of French historic figures. Entrance is free.

Different things most days - sometimes a market, sometimes street performers. Lots of bars and cafes around the square so you can sit and watch the world go by. Nice area to take photos and beautifully lit at night.

The building is beautiful--it does seem like the heart of the city. Around the area there are shops and restaurants, so it is a great place to people watch. We sat in an outdoor restaurant and watch France play in the World Cup!

This square is the heart of Toulouse with cafes mainly on one side and a large ornate building on the opposite side which contains a theatre and the very busy 'marriage room'. The tourist office is just through the archway past the 'marriage room'.

Old but new and totally alive. The town hall is quite extravagant with painted walls and an intense baroque feel in many of them. The square itself is ringed with cafes and shops. It is often the space for concerts and other festivities. A must see if you are in Toulouse.

Interesting by both day and night, I enjoyed this grand plaza when it had bazaars and stands, and was buzzing with life, but also when it was empty and quieter, especially at night. IT has cafes, book stores, other shops and of course the city's centerpiece, the Capitole town hall with its magnificent frescoed grand rooms to be seen inside.... More

Felt safe, and welcoming lovely place to sit if the weather is good. Fountains, gardens, and lots of nearby excellent shops. Fabulous Opera house almost hidden at the rear of the Place.
