You will not believe the main post office building in Mexico City. It has to be seen to be appreciated. Polished brass and beautiful architecture. They sure don't make them like this anymore.

This is located across the Bellas Artes. You can freely walk inside and have a look at a perfectly preserved and working colonial building. Gives you a perspective of the wealth of colonial Spain during the time.

An outstanding building, worth to visit even in case you only need some stamps to send a card to those back home.

This building is a throwback to a different time. The beautiful interior and exterior make it worth a stop on a walking trip through the historical district.

The Post Office building is directly opposite the Palace de Belles Artes and is equally as imposing. Take a look inside to be overwhelmed by the opulence and imagine the standing of Mexico City in those glory times! For those that are interested in stamps, there is a small museum, albeit with short opening times.

Mexico City is full of surprises. The Edificio de Correos is certainly one of them. This XIX century bulding shows the elegance this city lived when its downtown area was developed. It is truly a gem, well kept and worth the few minutes to visit it. Right next to Bellas Artes, do not miss it in your downtown tour.

Crowded place on celebrations. I remember was an anniversary for this house. Was a real odyssey go in and go out. I return other moment to see the building and its history.

Do not pass this by. The architecture and details are definitely worth a stop. Be sure to climb the stairs for an alternate view.
