You have to go inside, the interior of this building in art nouveau style is breathtakingly beautiful. We visited around Christmas and there was beutifully decorated Christmas tree in the main hall. There's an on-site museum for fans of post and postal history and some activities for small children. We only stayed a bit but we really enjoyed it.

This is an amazing post office full of antiques. Jump back into time just by stepping in. Great to see such a building still used for its intended purpose.

The Edificio de Correos is conveniently located next to the Palacio de Bellas Artes. Don't miss it....a must see for architecture buffs. For the short amount of time this one takes, the rewards are enormous.

Built by Porfirio over 100 years ago, the Palacio Postal is one of the finest architectural buildings in all Mexico. It is #1 in anybody's list when visiting downtown. Get inside, get to see the magnificent stairway and climb to the first floor for a picture. Tip: There is a public library in the first floor, ask to get permission... More

A distinctive architectural landmark (Adama Boari, also the architect of the Opera House) with dragon light fixtures on the exterior and a beautiful building that still functions as a post office, but in an age where snail mail has usurped the role of this institution worldwide, it was great to see children queued up to give their Christmas wish list...

The architecture both inside and out are simply stunning, Definitely worth a visit when strolling through El Centro. A good place to get stamps for those postcards as well.

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
