When you enter the place it is actually a postal office that is up and running, however you feel transported to a kind of harry potter movie. This attraction is available when walking around Reforma.

We stumbled upon this building purely by chance and were glad we did. A former major bank, it is now a major post office. The interior is a wondrous collection of marble floors and an elaborate central staircase that divides into branches at each floor. The ornate brass railings, teller cages and other finishes are spectacular--unlike any we've seen in... More

This amazing post office building is very large that pictures don't capture its opulence. While visiting nearby attractions, like Palacio Bellas Artes , it's worth a walk through. You are not allowed to use their elevator but you are allowed to go up the staircase. Just stand back and marvel it's grandeur. Outside, its facade is comical with dragon adorned... More

This is one of the buildings you have to visit in mexico city near the zocalo, it's very very impressive, it's build from italian materials, the interior is awesome, you have to visit it, it's obligatory to visit this building, the museum in the third floor is not important.

The fretwork on the exquisite, interior staircases will take your breath away. And this is a Post Office? It is aptly named: palacio. One can climb up two flights of stairs, peer into the post office on the ground floor and imagine life 150 years ago. Really exquisite. A marvel. And free.

We visited Palacio Postal after Bellas Artes on 1/11/2017. The building and its staircases were beautiful. It is free to enter.

Beautiful, historical buildings, worth a visit inside, still in use. You can take pictures only of some parts of it. Free entrance. Close to Zocalo

Went in to buy some stamps and was awed at how beautiful the interior was. Gorgeous staircase. By far the stateliest post office I've ever visited.

Spent a few minutes here...Areas beyond the staircase are off-limits to general public...The shot from the top looking at the employees n customers was cool...They had a huge Christmas tree when we visited...Photo op there...Can't guarantee the same when you visit...:) Worth stopping by for a few minutes if you are in the area...

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.
