It is a working Post Office with a few trinkets stores, some old architecture. Unless you are an architecture buff not much more then a 15 minute visit. Probably part of any city tour not entrance fee so worth a look.

I remember those banks of phones in Post Offices across Europe, back in the day! Not needed now in the Mobile Phone generation! Great to see they haven't removed them - a great colonial experience until you look up at Uncle... More
