Just across the street from Palacio Bella's Artes, the interior of this post office is a gem. Done in Pofiriato-style brass by Italian craftsmen, the grand staircase will use up a few megapixels. It's only good for a few minutes in passing, unless you decide to visit the small museum of the Mexican Navy upstairs, which is charming in its... More

This is such an opulent place I just could not believe it. I also loved that it is still being used so I could buy my stamps for my postcards here.

Don't miss going inside this amazing old Post Office to be dazzled by the elaborate mix of brass, iron and marble, restored to its early 20th century grandeur. The building is a mix of various styles, with elements of Art Nouveau, Rococo, Gothic, Baroque, Art Deco and Moorish design. The staircase and twin lifts are a study in symmetry and... More

The post office is like no other I've seen, the internal architecture is wonderful and deserves a quick visit on your tour of the city. It's close to the Zocalo (and El Cardenal which is a must visit restaurant in CDMX).

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.

Neighborhood Profile
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.
