  • 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!

  • Whenever I am going to the city centre pass by this emblematic building. Its architecture is beautiful. Outside one can see street musicians and a very cosmopolitan atmosphere, a coffee to the front and take a stroll through the building as though it has many things in if same is beautiful. If you like Philately same has its space, and a small shop. The post itself, service is very good, is not more to send a postcard when one is travel, it is fast, cheap and safe.

  • Post card in here is the best gift ! Do it!
  • 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.
