I think that the name describes everything. It not a post office but a Palace!!! The building is amazing. The internal decoration even much better! I really have no words to describe it. So beautiful building which still works as a post office and as a museum in parallel. If you are somewhere around, don't loose the opportunity to visit... More

This is, by far, the most beautiful post office I have ever visited. It is located in the Historical Center of Mexico City. Entrance is free and worth ever second. I would recommend that you bring a tripod if you are into photography as lighting is minimal.

This is a stunningly beautiful building that still serves as a bustling post office. The historical section is small but fascinating.

Worth a short visit while you wander around the city centre. It is right next to Belles Artes and a couple of hundred metres from the Torre Latino. It is still a working post office but quite beautiful and also free!

Its so lovely and close to other sites, it's worth checking out. The interior work is beautiful and should seen if you're in Centro Historico or Belles Artes. You wont be there that long and it's free.

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.

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.
