Centrally located next to the Bank of Mexico and facing the Palacio de Bellas Artes, the Palacio de Correos is an emblematic building built at the start of the 20th century to house the headquarters of the Central Post Office.

Designed by Italian architect Adamo Boari (1863 – 1928) (who also designed the Palacio de Bellas Artes) and constructed by Mexican military engineer Gonzalo Garita y Frontera, the building is in a highly eclectic style, combining, among others, Art Nouveau, Spanish Renaissance Revival, Plateresque, Spanish Rococo, Elizabethan Gothic, Elizabethan Plateresque and Venetian Gothic Revival. The building was one of the first in the city to have elevators.

On May 4, 1987, the building was declared an Artistic Monument.
