  • What an incredible piece of architecture inside/out. This post office is definitely worth the visit to learn about how the postal started in Mexico.
  • A superb old building built in 1907 with excellent architectural taste, marble floors and steel parts in a great combination. The building inspired scenes of the Coco movie.
