Worth a brief visit for the interior decor and interesting to see an old style working post office, but it's not as stunning as some of the photos make it look. Cathedral and shady parks next door.

Gorgeous building inside and out. Very well maintained. By Notre Dame Cathedral so very easy to wander by.

This architecture is so beautiful and a heritage of era of French colony. But now it is only post office. There are some souvenir shops and office function inside. I think it is enough to take photos about architecture outside, don't need to enter the inside.

A nice big old building, I went in because I stumbled across it when out for a walk. Not really worth going out of your way to see, however is beside the Notre Dame Cathedral. Ok to visit
