  • The pictures don't do this 100+ year old Post office, which is still in use today. Great place to stop in and look in awe.
  • Beautiful palace turned into a Post Office. Well, someone has to preserve this architecture's gem, right? ... So plase, contribute by sending postal letters or packages by Mexpost while enjoying the view. And remember to visit the museum above!

  • A beautiful example of baroque - clacissistic architecture. Height 28 m.
