Capitole de Toulouse

The Capitole is the heart of the municipal administration of the French city of Toulouse. The current façade, 135 m (443 ft) long and built of characteristic pink brick in the Neoclassical style, dates from 1750, while the structures surrounding the Place du Capitole, the large square in front of the building, were redesigned in the first half of the 19th century. Today, the Capitole serves as Toulouse's city hall, as well as housing an opera company and a national orchestra. A thorough redesign of the Place du Capitole in 1995 reserved the space for pedestrians, and incorporated a large Occitan cross on the ground, a symbol of the historical region of Occitania.
