The Palacio de Correos de México (Postal Palace of Mexico City) also known as the "Correo Mayor" (Main Post Office) is located in the historic center of Mexico City, on the Eje Central (Lazaro Cardenas) near the Palacio de Bellas Artes. It was built in 1907, when the Post Office here became a separate government entity. Its design and construction was the most modern of the time, including a very eclectic style mixing several different traditions into a very complex design. In the 1950s, the building was modified in a way that caused stress and damage, so when the 1985 earthquake struck Mexico City, this building was heavily damaged. In the 1990s, restoration work has brought the building back to original construction and appearance.

The pictures don't do this 100+ year old Post office, which is still in use today. Great place to stop in and look in awe.
Beautiful palace turned into a Post Office. Well, someone has to preserve this architecture's gem, right? ... So plase, contribute by sending postal letters or packages by Mexpost while enjoying the view. And remember to visit the museum above!
There's nothing to do here for a tourist, but don't let that stop you from walking in and enjoying an amazing bit of architecture.
A beautiful example of baroque - clacissistic architecture. Height 28 m.
DOV: 19Aug2014 This is the most beautiful post office I have ever visited. Its excellent in structure, and interior is made of fully golden with extreme beauty. You will get latest stamps and miniature sheets here as well and good place for philatelic enthusiasts.
Una verdadera sorpresa entrar a este impresionante edificio. Nadie me previno de que al entrar, encontraría una pieza arquitectónica de esta envergadura. México lo tiene todo!
Interiors that is extravagant, opulent and will blow your minds off!
Beautiful Neogothic-style building which, incredibly enough, they still actively use today. It's such a nice view from inside. At the time that we arrived, there was a tour going on inside, we learned a lot about this place. There are working elevators inside that can bring you to the upper floors. The stairs aren't allowed to be used because of the marble slowly degrading.
Beautiful building Neogothic style. It’s worth the visit. Some scenes from Coco movie were inspired in this building. There’s a museum on the second floor for free.
