  • What a way to celebrate snail mail! The building is a marvel to behold, every bit from the inside out is gorgeous. It also doubles as a museum for mail services in Mexico and it's history with other temporary galeries.
  • A must see in Mexico! Amazing architecture. It IS a palace! Entrance is free (it's a post office after all) so don't miss it. A few exhibits inside.
  • 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!
  • A beautiful working post office. No more than 10-15 minutes.
  • 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!
