“A nice place to visit near Plaza de Armas”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

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.

“Beautiful building”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

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.

“I like it for the architecture”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

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

“Nice Post Office and Telegraph Museum - Great Stamp Collections”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

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.
