Very nice place to visit while being around Palacio de Bellas Artes. As it's a post office, the entrance is free. Interesting fact is that the ornaments were made in Italy. You can buy there some souvenirs and postcards of Mexico City.

Unless you're a postal history buff, budget 10-15 minutes to walk through this historic post office. It's ornate, grand, and still operating. The staircases include marble steps and intricate iron work and make a great setting for a photo. It's located across the street and...More

Okay, I didn't see pictures of this place before we stumbled across it and I suspect that is ideal. Stop looking at the pictures right now. Just mark this place on your map and make a point of going so you can be as shocked...More

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

Operating post office, free entry into main area with ability to go up to 2nd level of stairs. My kids immediately told me that it reminded them of Gringots from Harry Potter. Worth a 10 min stop.

We stumbled onto this by accident and couldn't believe it was an actual working post office. The marble work among everything else is unbelievable. It's located right behind the Placio of Bellas Artes and worth the detour for a quick look.

A local told me this was his favourite building in Mexico City, so I popped inside. It's an old post office (still functioning) in an gorgeous building. There was a small art display, but it was worth seeing just for the beautiful architecture. It was...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
