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

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.

A very nice colonial post office it looks like a bank. The building is cover in copper rails, elevators, and stairs. If you have family with kids between 6 and up they will really get amazed by the beauty of the building .While you are there mail a post card to friends or family. Best of all it is free!

The Edificio de Correos should inspire everybody to send letters through the Post rather send emails/texts. It is a very beautiful building both in and outside. Just stroll through and around as you are walking in Centro Storico. But do not forget to buy some stamps !
