Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

Market, cafés, imposing architecture, throngs of happy people. Easy walk to the river, les Jacobins and many other attractions. A true Place du Capitole.

“Place du capitole”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Wonderful place. We we there for the Saturday market which was fantastic. Great food, beer, wine and overall experience. The best was a night, while sitting outside at a restaurant, facing the Plaza, they had a "Mummers" parade - almost like it was in our honor:). Great location in the center of the city and pleanty to see.

“Le coeur d' Oc.”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

It's not the place per se.
It's the feeling that you are now at the heart of what used to be 'Pays d'Oc'. The southern kingdom of France - and what better testimony to it than the large Occitan Cross at the very centre of la Place du Capitole.
It is a pleasant place, and surrounded by many restaurants, cafes, and ice cream parlours.

If you are interested it the town's history, take any of the streets that radiate from this square and you will find that the City has made an effort to tell its story by placing tile tablets describing facts about each street.

“The Grand centre of Toulouse”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

The shops and restaurants around the square are varied and fabulous. The chocolate shop is worthy of a visit on its own.
