Outstanding historic building

if you are visiting the historic downtown district of Mexico City you most stop by. It is a classic post office building from the beginning of the 20th century.

There's these two stunning antique elevators inside of it. Someone there told me they used them (and the building) to film segments of the movie Titanic. It's definitely a must see, and it has no cost to enter.

This is certainly nicer than my local post office! Still a functioning postal outlet- you can watch the postal workers sorting mail. The building is beautiful with a grand staircase. Worth a quick pop in.

We visited this building as part of a private tour of the historic center. It is a gorgeous building, entrance is free and there was an additional exhibit about the country's military. Worth a stop to admire its architecture and details.

This building still functions as a Post office. It is located across from the Belles Artes building and is impressive building both on the outside and in the inside with it's magnificent staircase.

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
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.
