Place du Capitole, Toulouse

4.4
Some of the interior of Place du Capitole can be traced to the 16th century, but the current Neoclassical façade dates back to 1750. Made of pink marble and 135 m (443 ft) long, it boasts eight columns that represent the original eight capitals of the 16th century. In 1873, Eugène Viollet-le-Duc built the bell tower on top of the donjon or inner tower, in the typical northern French style. Only the Henri IV courtyard and gate survive from the original medieval buildings. Today the building houses the city hall, as well as an opera company and a symphony orchestra.

  • Toulouse's iconic square surrounded by prestigious brick buildings: City Hall, large hotels ... It is impressive in its size. Access can be done by metro or car (mouth and parking nearby). The town hall is also visited.
