“Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

The architecture is fabulous! Not a place to spend a lot of time, but el Palacios de Bellas Artes is across the street, and so it the Latin American Tower, which has an observation area for views of the city.

“Marvelous Stairs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The design of this building and the stairs in particular are unique. The elevators are also worth seing. You travel in time to see a post office now that everything is email! Anyone that cares for arquitecture will love being there.

“A magnificent building in the heart of Mexico City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

If you happen to visit Mexico City do not forget to go to this beautiful building. There are original booths in which still people send mail like in the old times. But the stairs in the middle of the patio are the key of the construction. The location is easy to find, it is on the right side hand of the Fine Arts Palace. And both buildings are the diamonds of Mexico's downtown.

“The best of Europe in central Mexico City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The Postal or Correos Building in the center of Mexico City is one the most impressive pieces of architecture in the world. The elaborate craftsmanship of it building equals that of any in Florence and the inside remind you of Peter the Greats Gold Palace in St. Petersburg.

In the middle of awe and wonder you can still send a post card back home.
