Do not pass this by. The architecture and details are definitely worth a stop. Be sure to climb the stairs for an alternate view.

An early 20th century post office beautifully restored and still operating. Great to mail off letters and postcards from here.

Its the old and main post station of Mexico. Its really nice to take pictures of the inside. But there isn't much more than that. If you are an architect or love building structures that are from de 1900s and well preserved, then I do recommend it.

The post office is worth a quick peek at just to see the metal work of the stairs, elevator and the ticket windows. Building materials and craftsmanship we don't often see anymore.

This is close to many other sites so it makes sense to visit it. It is a really beautiful building. If I was a stamp enthusiast I might have given it a higher rating.

Just go and visit while you are exploring downtown. Go to the top floor and take a look at the old clock. Buy some Mexican stamps in the lobby.

Don't miss this beauty. It is the most amazing building in downtown Mexico City. This bug building used to be the central postal office and still operates now but obviously with less volume of letter due to the email and modern times.

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
