“Most beautiful post office ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Take a camera and some postcards. This is a great tourist site and not to far from the main pedestrian mall.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

If you like architecture and design, this is gorgeous. The building is located close to the Torre Latino. It is of antique South of Spain-Arabic gorgeous design. But it is not all. The inside is truly amazing: 1900 art deco design, marble staircases and metal work.
Entrance is free.

“Short Stop in the Zocalo--Be Sure To See The Stunning Architecture!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

If you're in the Zocalo, be sure to stop by the Palacio de Correos to see the city's main post office. This structure is next door to the Palacio de Bellas Artes and down the street from several museums. The beautiful detailing is a treat. There's also a wonderful collage of an eagle with a snake in its mouth--made entirely of postage stamps!!

“The Correos is beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Wow you have to go in to appreciate the building. It has the most beautiful ceiling and the outside reminds me our architecture from Venice.

“Nice if you enjoy Architecture”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

It's been a while since I've been there, but the architecture is amazing, and is like time travelling through Mexico past. Love the golden details inside the building. Something very sad is that the building has been painted with graffiti’s, hope someone does something about that.
