Capitole de Toulouse
The Capitol houses the city hall of Toulouse and the Capitol Theatre.
Built from 1190, the building has undergone many alterations, reconstruction and adds. The remains left of the sixteenth century are the dungeon and the Henri IV court. In the eighteenth century, the eight sheriffs, the representatives of eight districts of Toulouse, decided to restore the monument to house the municipal palace. A new harmonious facade was built and adorned with eight columns of pink granite representing the eight sheriffs.
We can also see the Henri IV court, who was involved in financing the work. It is in this court that the Duke Henri II de Montmorency was beheaded by order of Richlieu due to its participation in the revolt against the royal power.
The Capitol is also the headquarters of the Opera theater. It is considered as one of the most beautiful place in France with a excellent reputation for its acoustics.
