  • Can you imagine a US Post Office as clean and well maintained as this building is? I (sadly) cannot. The lights, the staircase, the marble floors ... all so well maintained and beautiful.

  • Doesn’t look much from the outside, but superbly proportioned within. Art Deco styling supreme and still a working Post Office. Not to be missed.

  • Wow. A bit of Europe right here in CDMX. Send a post card from this slice of Heaven. Unexpectedly beautiful.

  • This is the most amazing post office Ive been too. It is built as if it were a bank with solid and thick metal material. If it looks medal it is. Very very pretty.
  • Not something that's worth going for only, but if already there, its an interesting building to walk into as well.
  • A free place worth checking out to see the architecture inside.
  • Beautiful place for post office. Must visit if in mexico city.
  • It is a beautiful building located in the centre. Amazing that it has been a Palace that is now used as a post office. You can enter for free and you will notice the people working behind the bars with all the packages etc. Unfortunately, the entree to the upper floor was not available so we couldn t see much Basically what you see in the photos below. Bust still nice as you walk past the neighbourhood. Try it now and maybe send a postcard to your family
