Place du Capitole
What would Toulouse be without its Capitole? With Renaissance architecture and daily and seasonal activities aplenty, there’s always something going on at the Place du Capitole. The spot is surrounded by restaurants, shops and plenty of cafes, and has undergone construction and reconstruction many times since it was first built in 1190. Its pink bricks come from the Neoclassical style, truly reflecting Toulouse’s title of “The Pink City”, while today the Capitole also contains the City Hall coupled with the Théâtre du Capitole de Toulouse – both majestic sights in their own right.
