  • When you enter the place it is actually a postal office that is up and running, however you feel transported to a kind of harry potter movie. This attraction is available when walking around Reforma. 
  • Know well through the Free Walking Tour, the architecture is beautiful, especially on the inside. Has a small "Museum" on the side, with antique pieces and a mosaic made only of stamps. The history of this mural was told by our guide that helped the visit more interesting.

  • Also known as " Correo Mayor" this main postal office is home to one of the most beautiful stair cases in the world. It is open to the public and one can take pictures of the beautiful metal work alongside the railings and the fully functional original elevator. Definitely a must see and best of all is free of charge!
  • Another amazing building to visit and take a look of the details all over. Enjoy Mexico and its architecture! And so important to preserve traditional mail! Write something inspiring and send it from there!
  • There are post offices and there is post offices. Imagine a post office in The Great Gatsby and it will give you an idea of what's like. I only came here as a friend needed a stamp. What a pleasant surprise this place was.
  • Great building. The interior design is absolutely worthy.
