The Edificio de Correos is located in Downtown Mexico City. The most popular time that is visited I was told is during Christmas is the designated are for all the kids in the City to dropp off the Christmas Cards to Santa. Beautiful piece of Archictecture.

A truly beautiful building which still operates as a post office. Worth having a look inside at the staircase and materials imported from Italy. A very nice building!

Both the interior and exterior of the Postal Palace are something you have to see if you come to México City. The staircase is one of the most beautiful ones.

Closed on Mondays, don't be afraid to walk inside the places where you can't are clearly marked, the place is still function so you can actually send a postal card for 1.3 usdlls it will take like 3-4 weeks to reach the destination in the US but it will !

The interior of the Edificio de Correos is breath-taking-- truly one of the most beautiful active post offices in the world. The interior staircase is especially lovely-- visitors aren't allowed on the historic elevators. This is very close to other attractions in the Centro Historico, and it's definitely worth the walk over to Tacuba!

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
