Once the central post office of the Guatemala, Edificio de Correos Central remains a cultural institution in the heart of the city. Built in the 19th century, it sits as a classic example of colonial architecture. Arches, which are prominent throughout the building, both support the structure and act as a styling cue. Find an abundance of arch shaped windows as well as a central bridge connecting two buildings, which is held up by an arch. The building houses art and musical classes as well as one of the best symphony orchestras in the country.

  • The municipality is making an extraordinary effort to conserve it and have different art exhibitions. The only thing to regret is that El Paso's bridge is not available.

  • One of the most typical places of Guatemala City. You can not get a picture with his bow. On Sunday there is almost nobody even if the building is closed

  • 7 blocks from the main square of this post of Arcco, a very important place in the history of the city, is an excellent Museum of Philately in the city. However I do not recommend to visit him alone, in part because of the crime between week. It is more secure on weekends (for the traditional photo with the bottom of the arch) also there is less traffic. During the Holy week, this place is a point of reference for the processions that pass through there. But it's worth the penalty blames a visit even outside to behold the beauty of the building, since it is not very common see an arch that crosses two blocks

  • The post office building was built between the years 1939 and 1940 during the Government of Jorge Ubico. The building is currently managed by the municipality of Guatemala being a cultural center where classes of dance, music, Visual Arts, among others. The arc of post photos were taken Holy Tuesday-the procession of Jesus Nazareno of the Beguinage of Bethlehem.
