  • A beautiful working post office. No more than 10-15 minutes.
  • 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.
  • I am in love with this building. It's so gorgeous inside and out, you can imagine all the history that has gone through the walls of it just by standing there. A must when visiting the city center.
