The Postal Palace as it is called renders truth in every sense to its name. Not only the exterior is truly awesome but the inside as well. On the upper floor you can visit then Install museum. The building in itself is worth the time and visit. The details such a as fine ironwork, decorative elements, color, play of lights,... More

Correct name is Palcio de Correos (Postal Palace) and not Edificio de Correos (Postal Building)... Beautiful historical palace with am,azing cage elevators and palace like stair ways... Old italian metal fixtures adorn each postal cashier... War meuseum in the top floor also worth doing a quick walk around

We first spotted this building while walking from the Palacio de Bellas Atres to the Zocalo. Fortunately, I ran across mention of it later and when back for a look. If you're a photographer, don't miss your chance to see it - brass everywhere and a lovely style missing in modern buildings.

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.
