The Capitole (French for "capitol") is the heart of the municipal administration of the French city of Toulouse and its city hall.
It is supposedly on the spot that St Saturninus was martyred. The bishop of Toulouse is said to have been tied to the legs of a bull, which was driven down the steps of the town's capitol, causing his head to be bashed open.
