Though only able to view from the outside, its an impressive landmark building in Toulouse. There's a huge plaza in front with multiple restaurants and shops. A great tourist attraction not to be missed.

A wonderful large space with classical architecture but now that one cannot enter the capital building there is not a great deal to do there. There is a small market area with ethnic stalls and one side has lots of restaurants and cafes. Nice to chill there after walking all around. At the back, you can find the tourist office,... More

My family (kids 10 and 12) were in awe of the Capital Building. The painted walls in the wedding halls and in other rooms are absolutely amazing. I am unsure how any work gets done in this building, as I would be staring at the walls all day. We attended soon after the Charlie Hebdo massacre and saw the memorial... More

Place du Capitole is a must see if you travel to Toulouse. The city hall and the ornamented arcades fiited with superb painted pictures on their ceiling surround the place.

When you visit the magnificent central square of Toulouse, remember that it's not just a tourist venue, but the living historic centre of a vibrant modern city.

The following day I attended the minute's silence there and watched young people fixing... More

There are often activities organised here, like a christmas market in December, or a spectacular lightshow or circus performance during the summer. Avoid the restaurants and bars directly around the square though (expensive)

This is a wonderful city centre square with City Hall, Opera House, a number of worthwhile bistros and brasseries, two excellent hotels I had reviewed (Crowne Plaza and Grand Hotel D'Opera). It is close to all major landmarks. On certain weekdays it hosts fairs and markets. There can be no Toulouse without Place du Capitole.
