  • This site is itself a museum, there is no corner of the building that does not cause the astonishment of themselves and strangers. I keep there a portal section for the nostalgia of returning again and again... It is a superb place and is located in one of the cultural hubs of the Historic Center of Mexico City.

  • With impressive architecture, Baroque style, beautiful building in the center of Mexico City, another must, and still functions as a mailing center, a romantic touch in this era.

  • The building was built in the early 20th. It really looks like a palace, not only from the outside, but also inside. But this is the postal building, gentlemen!

  • What an incredible piece of architecture inside/out. This post office is definitely worth the visit to learn about how the postal started in Mexico.
  • A superb old building built in 1907 with excellent architectural taste, marble floors and steel parts in a great combination. The building inspired scenes of the Coco movie.
  • If you are a stamp collector the windows only have about 3-4 different stamps to sell. Mailed a couple letters from here Registered. Dispatched fairly quickly.
  • Any easy stop en route to Palacio de Bellas Artes or Parque Alameda. Beautiful inside and out.
  • Worth a quick visit if you're in the area, the palace is remarkable and since it's open to the public it's a fun quick visit.
