This building allows visitors to see their amazing stairwell, however, you are not allowed upstairs. Enjoy the view. This is a 15 minute tops pit stop.

Beautiful building pointed out to us while on a walking tour - worth walking through and imagining when this was an even buisier post office in years past

Just walking in you have to marvel at the impressiveness of the past. I see one person gave it one star rating but still said it was great. If you are down here, you should come see it.

The former post office is located close to Bellas Artes in the heart of Mexico City, and is well worth the short walk. You will find yourself transported back to a time long gone. The old, iron elevator is still functioning and brings you to...More

This was my first stop in the city because I wanted to be sure to get there before it closed. It was an enchanted bubble of brass in a chaotic sky. It's free and only takes about 15 minutes if you're a photographer and if...More

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

No charge. Gratis. Free. It is a major, working, public facility. You may need to pay only for special tours to upper levels but it is unnecessary to see the beautiful interior
