When you are walking around downtown San Jose stop in and mail a post card. This is a grand old post office building and makes an interesting sightseeing stop.

Neo-classicist building with a touch of art deco from early 20th century. At the time an ultra-modern place with post and telegraph communications provision. These means are now part of the past and I wonder what the future destination of the building will be. No wifi, so probably not something related to modern communication.

Whilst the Spanish have a fairly torrid reputation in Latin America for having stolen all the gold and done little else, they did of course leave a legacy of fine buildings with iconic style and often with a local feel. This is one such building and serves as a commanding structure in the central square. It makes an interesting contrast with the modern Central bank building behind it

Is a very nice arhitectural building in a colonial style. In this buiilding you see the old and new Costa Rica. Outside and inside is decorate with huge white colomns from white marble. Must be a patrimonial objective, only to visit and to be a guide who must tell the story of this wonderful place. Also i sow one per week people who like philatelia met there and change efects or speak about very important stamps.
