This old building still operates as a place to pay your bills, send your packages, and in addition to the locals offers great variety of handcraft for foreigners who are looking for souvenirs...

Well worth a visit just to look round. There are ATM machines, phones, stamps and souvenirs, and a few seats to sit on. It is opposite the Notre-Dame Cathedral and near the Diamond Plaza Shopping Centre

Neat to stop in and see all the action in this Eiffel designed building. Lots of people doing business and tourist taking photos. As well as weddings taking place out front.
