Not really asntonishing or anything, it's a nice place to see, because of its architecture. It is one of the historical buildings in Santiago.

The post office is housed in a beautiful building on Plaza de Armas. It certainly is worth a visit when you are in the square.

My title says it for me. There are some neat things to see inside. The building itself is what I like most.

The Central Post Office on Plaza de Armas contains a very nice, free, post office museum (Museo Postal y Telegrafico). It is worth seeing, if only for the somewhat ornate architecture and wrought-iron railings and ceiling. It has very nice displays of post office and telegraph equipment throughout the history of Chile. I found particularly interesting the numerous pull-out, poster-size file drawers containing stamps from a great many countries.

It is definitely worth 15 or 20 minutes when visiting the Plaza de Armas. I enjoyed it, even though I don't speak Spanish.
