Very nice architecture and history

You can enjoy the history of the postal office and appreciate the beauty of this building. It will take you less than an hour to tour it and it is nearby Bellas Artes.

Wasnt sure at first, but once inside it is jaw-dropping. The architecture is amazing for this working post-office. Very easy to get to, right across the street from Bellas Artes. Spend 30-1 hr wandering about. Photographers would spend a bit more as it is a rich place to take pictures! Shouldnt miss this one!

This a great place to go to to get out of the sun and into a cool place. It is nestled in the heart of the Centro Historico and can be visited the same day as other attractions. Everything is made of brass and marble. Climb the staircase to see this impressive building and observe the locals as it still... More

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.

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.
