Wow!

There is nothing to compare with the magnificence of this Post Office, it is very grand and well worth popping in just to look at the ceiling and space.

This is still the Post Office building so be careful when taking photos as I saw someone being asked not to take a picture that included the counters where people were being served. The building is very pretty outside and inside there are still some original areas such as the old post boxes and the spectacular glass ceiling. Also on... More

Go and see the fine glass roof and inhale the sphere of old days. Yes, a fine place indeed. Do not miss it, it is one if the fine constructs to visit in the old city.

Even when you are not supposed to travel by train, enter the station and first walk in the room on your right hand. Marvelous ceramics paintings on the wall. Also the station itself with its old ticket offices is very nice.

This post office is worth the visit to look at the architecture not just to post a letter. A very distinct interesting design and we enjoyed walking round the building taking a look.

Go in the day time so you can see the magnificent huge stained glass ceiling. Stunning. Go again at night to see the lights on the exterior. Very impressive.

It is unlikely that any tourist in Valencia will not walk past this beautiful building as it is on the main square. Beautiful architecture on the outside and a stunning interior. Don't walk past, pop in. It won't take long and you won't regret it.

If you find yourself in the square it's well worth crossing over to look inside the Correos to see the decor. Sadly when we visited we were unable to glimpse the postboxes outside as they were covered by scaffolding and barriers as ithe outside is being refurbished.

The ceiling of the Central Post Office is a hidden marvel. Steel and stained glass create an amazing vault. Central hours of the day are recommended for they render the best light.

This building was covered with netting but still couldn't hide its eclectic style and impressive looking two story façade w/ a main entrance flanked by double Ionic columns and arch topped w/ allegorical figures & a clock. It was built between 1915-22 and is situated right across the stunning City Hall building in the southern end of the historical center... More
