Nice colonial architecture and area to do people watching in San Jose after a leisurely walk. Definitely an architectural gem to visit.

impressive building and place
Apr 2019 • Family
Worth to pass here (on the way to the markets), the building is absolutely impressive and reminds us of the time before email and package delivery services. You do not have to go inside as there is nothing to see (at least not without any specific permission). The place in front invites to stay a moment for peoplewatching or the like.

San Jose’ looks a bit rundown but you can find some amazing “finds” hidden away and this is one of it.
The beautiful post office just sit majestic and call for a stop. Wonderful building.

Plenty of reasons to pass by; few to go inside

Look at the photos. It's a fab early 20th century building and you are sure to see it as you walk, bus or taxi by. Admire both the building and the spectacularly insensitive skyscraper planting which overshadows ot.

Impressive place to mail a postcard
Oct 2018 • Solo
I came here to send a few notes back home and was impressed by the exterior, which I spent some time sketching. It's also something of a gathering place out front. The post office is very orderly and the staff will set you right politely if you don't queue properly (!), which is kind of cute.

Beautiful post office

This post office makes you want to send a card to your friends: gorgeous from outside and beautiful inside. Check it out while you are walking in the downtown.

I love this Post Office
May 2017 • Solo
And I hate going to the Post Office! Grand in architecture and efficient service made this a pleasant little trip. Conveniently located and easy to understand how to navigate, the line was not bad and the workers pleasant. All the better to send those postcards home!

Architectural city centre gem
Mar 2018 • Couples
One of only a few historical building remaining in the city centre, this vast post office building has a resplendent facade. Inside there's quite a lot of security, mainly to watch the rows and rows of private post boxes. Outside the building it's a busy thoroughfare with quite a few street stalls.

Elegant building with style
Mar 2018 • Friends
The entire building is eye-catching in San José. It‘s huge after going around but very elegant in the sunshine.
