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

This has to be the most beautiful classic builiding in Downtown Mexico City. All details are gorgeous and the surrounding area is also impressive (Bellas Artes, Banco de Mexico, Sanborns Azulejos) and just 10-12 minute walk from the heart of Mexico City, the Zocalo. Worth the visit in a downtown tour.

It is so good to see this is still used as the main post office. It is free to get into, and that is just fine with me. The interior is just splendid. The brass is wonderful to behold. One can look at it and see how it was shipped from the foundry in Italy and assembled on site. The... More

This building is at least worth a pop-in visit (20-30 mins) to see the opulent gold plated bars surrounding the various mail rooms and well as the central staircase.

This is one of the most beautiful buildings that I have seen and to think it is a functioning post office. It has a long history and there has been a post office in this location for centuries. Take the time to go and see this building

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.
