The architecture is beautiful. For structure of over 100 years old, it holds up very well and is still in operation. The museum is a nice and quick stop if you're in the area.

The city's main working postal building is a marvel of design and structure for the turn of the 20th century. Beautiful use of brass and marble and flying staircases thru open space. Quite a marvel to view and photograph

Just popped our heads in for a quick look one evening. It is a really amazing building, so beautiful and detailed. Would have liked to have had a better look round but didn't have the time.

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
