Started in 1915, completed in 1922. Designed by the architect Miguel Ángel Navarro, the archiectural style is a mixture of Baroque, Classicism, and Modernism which was typical of the time. It has been in use since 1923 as a Post Office. The beautiful facade is amazing. At the very top of the building you will see a metal dome structure.... More

You have to enter to really see this building. Surprised at the design. We just happened onto this and went inside - nice surprise and free.

Like in other Spanish cities, the central Post Office, is worth it a visit. Beautifully decorated, the access through a majestic entrance opens up in a wide salon enriched by high ceilings and wonderful coloured glass works. It's recommended to send the postcards from this post office just to enjoy the building's architectural beauty. It's in Plaza del Ayuntamiento.

We admired this building from the outside only since this is a large square with individually designed buildings with a fountain in the middle. Unable to say whether or not you can gain entry to it. Another building which is pristine and gleams in the sunshine.

There is nothing to compare with the magnificence of this Post Office, it is very grand and well worth popping in just to look at the ceiling and space.

This is still the Post Office building so be careful when taking photos as I saw someone being asked not to take a picture that included the counters where people were being served. The building is very pretty outside and inside there are still some original areas such as the old post boxes and the spectacular glass ceiling. Also on... More

Go and see the fine glass roof and inhale the sphere of old days. Yes, a fine place indeed. Do not miss it, it is one if the fine constructs to visit in the old city.
