  • I have to admit that I saw its interior but its exterior is worth its weight in gold. The mouldings, the colors, the monument is beautiful. There is a beautiful cameo just to the center of the monument, sublime!

  • Historic building dating from the end of the 19th century. It offers a small Philatelic Museum with an interesting exhibition as well as its entire history in the country. It offers great security for sending letters and parcels both inside and outside the country. Although there used to be a small coffee shop had to close but as mentioned it is possible to return it to enable. They have a space where small samples of art are exposed.
