Obviously centrally located, this historical building is still in use. Back in the day, this is where you would pay bills, send money, & make calls from the beautifully crafted phone booths. I adored it & it's next to the Notre Damme Cathedral!

Good meeting place, very central and easy to locate. Nice building and a fully working post office. Good for a couple of photos and maybe sit down for a breather for 10 minutes. Good spot for people watching.

This is right next to Notre Dame so if you're viewing one then add this to your list. It is a building with a lot history and attracts a lot of visitors. Worth a stroll around and take a few photos or buy a few souvenirs.

A post office might sound like a strange place for a tourist attraction, and that's pretty much what it is. Although you can send letters, use the ATM, or buy a souvenir, you'll most likely just want to take pictures of the architecture here. And it's right across from the Notre-Dame Basilica, another picture-taking spot.

I fell in love with this building even from the outside. Walking inside was like taking a step back into the future. The architecture with arched roof and wooden panels is quite breathtaking when you pause to have a look. There are always many people here as it still functions as a post office so be prepared for a little... More

We saw this building as part of our city tour - what a beautiful old building which was built by the French all those years ago. It is just as beautiful inside as on the outside. It is a working post office and you are allowed to take photos inside. Certainly worth a visit. It is just near the Notre... More

Worth to take a few pics and learn about the history. Visit the old man who has spent half a century working there. The prices of the items sold by post office are fixed by govt. so cannot bargain there. You should spend not more than 30 mnts there.
