This place was for me a big surprise. When I entered to visit, I could not expect how beautiful this place is inside. Must see!

This building, located not far from the Palacio de Bellas Artes, designed by the same architect, is beautiful, and in remarkably good condition for a building in continuous use for over one hundred years. It only takes a few minutes to view and it's free. It also contains a small postal museum which I did not visit, and, as Mexico... More

If you are walking around Mexico City's downtown be sure to step inside this unbelievable building. The ornate staircase, the marble, the design is all stunning. The post office counters are so elaborate. Upstairs is a small museum. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Guess what this is, A POST OFFICE! Sounds crazy, but this building is an architectural wonder inside. It's free, has been around since the 1500's, has craftsmanship that you can't believe a human could accomplish without power tools. Marble floors and columns, beautiful stairways, metal works like you won't believe. Across the street from Bellas Artes.

Located nearby the Palacio de Bellas Artes is another work of art by Adamo Boari, same architect of the Palacio de Bellas Artes. Built in the early 1900's this masterpiece is a golden jewel in the Historic Center. Damaged by the 1985 earthquake but restored to it's original splendor! If you are into architecture, you will love stopping here!

You would never expect a Post Office (which is still working today) to be so richly decorated with an incredible staircase leading to the upper floors (tourists can't access the upper levels) made of marble and richly decorated in gold finishes you normally find in opulent palaces. It is close to other sights, so just walk inside and enjoy it... More

If you're at Bellas Artes, you might as well visit the Edificio de Correos just a block away. The building is toward the back side of Bellas Artes. If you're facing Bellas Artes, walk toward the back of Bellas Artes and it's on the corner of Ejercito. It's free and it's beautiful. There is also a small museum about the... More

This is one of the fanciest post office I've ever seen in my travels. You must stop by and enjoy the fine Italian craftsmanship and sheer beauty of it. It's on your way to either the Bellas Artes or Centro Historico.

The post office is an extremely beautiful building on the exterior and interior. Most tourists will visit Palacio de Bellas Artes and it's worth a trip to the post office while you're doing that as well. It's a block or two away and you will only need 15-20 minutes here. You can walk around the lower level which is an... More
