Technically, this is just a post office. But its Neo-Gothic architecture with the impressive brass interior make it a sight in itself. Make sure to go inside when passing by. They sell postcards, too.

It's really a beautiful structure and it's worth checking out, just to appreciate the amazing architecture. But not much to see besides that

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
