This is a pretty looking post office in the middle of town. Built around 1880-90 and not by the same guy who designed by Gustav Eiffel as falsely reported. The post office has a number of curio shops and I was pleasantly surprised when I entered. The architecture is interesting and seems to be a combination of various styles.

We had a quick trip to the post office. It's a huge gorgeous old building. Looked like a railway station with very high ceilings.

I wouldn't go out of your way to spend hours there, but the building is architecturally eye catching and definitely worth a walk through if you have 20 minutes or are in the area.

Great place to see for the architecture. By a postcard while you are there and send it off. Loved the old wooden phone booths still working, with phones inside. Met their oldest employee, an 87 year old gentleman who rides his bike to work everyday and is so full of life!

Lovely old PO with not only stamps available but shops as well. And phone booths! A relic from the days when the PO was for more than posting letters, but a central communication center.

When I entered the building, it looked like a central station rather than a post office. The buliding itself is in a colonial style. The tiles on the floors and walls are beautiful.

It was a nice enough building, but nothing so exciting that I would suggest going out of your way or taking valuable time away from other sites.

Beautiful Building..... echoes of a controversial colonial past. This building in the same part of town as the wonderful 1880;s Cathedral. With its great statement clock and open piazza , one could easily imagine the human pulled rickshaws... scurrying by carrying the high and mighty of the French colons.... As a UK citizen, we had the same in Singapore or... More
