Overview

Built between 1902 and 1907 by the Italian architect of the Palacio de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Museum), Adamo Boari, the Post Office has a stone facade carved with renaissance motifs. The main entrance faces diagonally towards the corner, covered by a wrought iron awning sustained by thick chains, over which two balconies jut out. The interior has an interesting spatial distribution and decor combining wrought iron and Carrara marble used throughout the stairways, counter, tables and post boxes. In the upper levels of the building, there is a museum where the historical development of the Mexican postal service is shown through philately.
