  • Very nice, just old building could see it outside but with that just as in general architecture is impressive

  • It is located on the pedestrian street of the city which ends in Central Park, where the Cathedral is located. The greenish color of the façade is striking. In addition to the functions and headquarters of the company of post in Costa Rica, on the second floor you can visit a museum. The building is somewhat buried by the huge building that has in the back of the National Bank, still is a must-see in the city.
