Beautiful square, with bueatiful building

I wouldn't allow to build up tents and sell products on this square. The quality of the products is not good enough for the place

The large, historic buildings are impressive, with a rusty colored brick, different from the stone used in other cities--made from local clay. The massive buildings border a huge, cobbled square. Along 2 sides are government buildings--the capitole with beautiful statues. Another side faces it with several outdoor cafes leading to indoor restaurants--from veggie juice cafes to elegant restaurants. Most staff... More

We visited in May and were allowed inside. Gorgeous and charming. Flags flying outside made impressive photos. You can't miss it in the main square. Enjoy a wine in the evening overlooking the plaza.

Best part of town for sure - reminded me of Spanish Plazas - since you are near(ish) to Spain, they even have tapas to enjoy the your french wine. Expect to overpay some dishes however.

This was a place of nonstop activity in the few days we were in Toulouse, which made for an even more interesting visit to the city. Take the time to have a coffee in one of the restaurants that surround the square, and just sit and people watch. A great way to spend some time.

A great number of good restaurants ring the square with others close by and the shopping streets radiate from here.

Beautiful marble staircase takes you up to several salon rooms where weddings are held. Fantastic oil paintings, gorgeous tapestries, several colors of beautiful marble adorn carved statues, and the painted ceilings - ooh la la! Don't miss this gem.

Enjoyed a drink in a variety of different bars/restaurants. Watching the world go by in front of the Capitole building back drop allows you to forget about time passing. My husband and I enjoyed fantastic 'glaces' at La Florida while watching Indian dancers in the square. Every time you pass through this square to wherever you're heading ,something different is...

But then, to follow up my title, you are in the very south of France and a Spanish feel might be expected. The Place is a huge rectangular expanse dominated by what must be the Hotel de Ville or some sort of government building, with a beautiful set of pinkish toned pillars at center. That long facade also houses the... More

It's quite a place to be in Toulouse and many important routes are going from the square. For me it was a place for further orientation. Namy nice cafes to enjoy some food and drink.
