Great square with good restaurants and nice ambience. They have concerts there sometimes and I'd love to go during one as it would be a great place to hear music.

The Place is impressive, a great place to people watch and soak up the relaxed atmosphere in the lovely old town. You must head inside the Capitole building itself and admire the beautiful Henri Martin paintings and the wedding hall.

The centre of Toulouse is such an easy, pleasant city to walk around and any visitor should go to the Place du Capitole. It is a huge open square with the very grand Mairie along one side (well worth a visit inside to see the beautiful impressionist paintings) facing a promenade of restaurants and cafe's, flanked by various shops and...

A large square! We visited on market day but were disappointed with the fare on offer- mainly bags and hats.

Beautiful place where the city hall is. The giant regional Occitane cross is drawn in gold on the floor. You can cross the tow nhall to the other side and see a bit of the architecture. it can also be visited.

Superb Spain like grand place. Enjoy the fully brick built buildings. Most with lime wash. Le Capitoul dominates the square and the major sights are easy to reach

Place du Capitole is a fantastic visit. Not only do you get a vibrant market square and many places to eat and drink but you get the building itself. The exterior architecture is impressive but so are the internal feature. The paintings within the building are breathtaking in their realism and symbolism. You really do feel that the characters are... More

As a regular visitor, it is always a good starting point for a tour of Toulouse and a first free visit of the building. It is central and leads to all the shopping street. It has a car park underneath. Not cheap but could be worse. Loads of cafes and restaurant around it.
