  • Yes yes yes. If you go to central district you must see this interior. The exterior is great but nothin compared to stepping inside. This is a working post office. I stopped to get a stamp and wow.  more »
  • 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.
