Just peek in to see the opulence that this building represents! Located just across the street from the Palacio de Bellas Artes, you could dip in on your way to or from the Zocalo if you're hanging out in the Centro Historico.

A very nice colonial post office it looks like a bank. The building is cover in copper rails, elevators, and stairs. If you have family with kids between 6 and up they will really get amazed by the beauty of the building .While you are there mail a post card to friends or family. Best of all it is free!

The Edificio de Correos should inspire everybody to send letters through the Post rather send emails/texts. It is a very beautiful building both in and outside. Just stroll through and around as you are walking in Centro Storico. But do not forget to buy some stamps !

This is a fantastic building made mostly out of Brass and with a mixed of french and italian architecture. This opulent building will transport you back in time as soon as you enter.

Really? Gilt and gorgeousness everywhere. Truly a Palace more than a Post Office. Still used to this day but most of it is empty. However, so easy to imagine it in its heyday when it must have been a bustling centre of activity. Worth a quick look for sure.

This is a must see when you're in central Mexico City. The interior is so pretty and both times I've visited it I've taken lots of pictures. It's also really near the National Museum of Art which is my favorite place near El Centro.

Designed during the reign of Porfirio Diaz, the central post office resembles a Venetian Palace, with an internal covered patio and elegant staircase.
