Beautiful.

Beautiful place, what I love the most here was they have small room for you to write your postcards and it was very private and quiet inside.

I was fascinated by the splendour of this building, especially the roof inside - so ornate and well decorated. It is very airy and light and a real credit to the city. It was a little confusing as to where to buy the stamps and indeed what services are available but we were very fortunate to be with our guide... More

The Post Office is right by Notre Dame Cathedral - just be careful crossing the road, it's so busy. Once inside it is a real piece of history, so impressive. Plenty of souvenirs to buy, they almost detract from the building itself.

It's a working post office that looks like it should be a train station. Interesting but no more than that. There are a couple of shops inside and some slightly odd statues outside. Lots of young people having photos taken.

A beautiful colonial building which is located right across from the Notre Dame cathedral. The telephone booths, maps and clocks are cool. Definitely worth to pay a visit. Forger about buying souvenirs from the post office though.
