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.

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
