The construction of this outstanding building,symbol of Mexico's city center, began in 1902 under the rule of Porfirio Diaz, the president wanted to show how prosperous and European our country was so he began a series of constructions throw out the city, this is by far among the prettiest ones. Definitively worth a visit!

Impossible to think nowadays that a Main Post Office could have been, architecturally speaking, so impressive! looking more like a French palace than a Post Office, it's marble interiors are truly impressive. A must see!

An architectural must see. Magnificent, elegant and a reminiscent of the opulent 1900 hundreds. Look at the iron work and the staircase. Take the gorgeous elevator and go visit the Navy museum that is located upstairs. Look at the crests around the escalator and the stain glass roof.

This is a building that I'd say is pretty easy to accidentally pass by without looking at it twice. It hides stunning old contrasts with the newer parts of the city. Worth the few minutes that it took to go over it.

Wonderful building with so much original detailing in tact. Massive scale, stunning materials and beautiful light (see the massive central stained glass skylight).

Visited the Edificio de Correos this week, and it was very interesting. It is worth a quick look. There are grand staircases and sky lights. Doesn't look like much business goes on here.

Worth swinging by if you are around the Bellas Artes or National Art museum, but otherwise don't go out of your way. A quick 5 min in and out.

My companion summed it up best: We visited here while waiting for the Bellas Artes to open. She stated, "Wow, after the Post Office building, this place (Bellas Artes) seems so 80's inside." Of course, she was referring to the building itself and not the amazing murals. But the PO buildging is just SPECTACULAR!

The architecture and history is beyond spectacular. There was a book fair adjacent when we visited and the trip was very enjoyable.

If you are at the zocalo, visit this building. It is beautiful. Take a walk down history lane when you see the bicycles with the mail... Highly recommended.

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
