This is a quick visit but well worth stopping into. Word has it that the postal system in Mexico City is really sluggish (try sending yourself a postcard), but the architecture is quite beautiful.

The building is spectacular with magnificent staircases, old light fixtures, shining brass railings and all the lovely stone work.

Considering this building operates as a post office, it is the most magnificent I've ever seen. It is a quick and easy stop on your other strolls around the Centro. Feel free to purchase stamps and drop your letters in the "buzon," but don't expect them to arrive promptly. Mine took 5-6 weeks to get from the Palacio Postal to... More

Beautiful Art Nuevo-ish building. Hard to pinpoint the style, but beautiful. Between the Belle Artes and the National Museum of Art. No entry fee.

Mexico's central post office building, another beautiful example of the french colonial architecture influence on Mexico's Porfiriato era.

This attraction is along the walk to Bella Artes from the Metropolitan Cathedral. We took a few shots from the street and it was pretty much what we had bargained for - wide angle shots at the historic town center.

This building is beyond what words or pictures portray. If you a photo lover you will spend hours capturing every detail of this magnificent building inside and out. Mexico did a tremendous job in restoring this iconic building. If you are in the historical section of downtime Mexico, this is time well spent ... with NO ADMISSION FEE.

Neighbourhood Profile
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
