This might be the first building you see when you arrive in Valencia, and it’s a special one, declared a Historical Artistic Monument in 1961, and designed by Valencian Demetrio Ribes Marco. It was completed at the beginning of the 20th century, and walking into the entrance hall feels like stepping back in time. Before its completion, trains used to run right through the main doorways of the unfinished building to their final destination at what’s now the Town Hall Square.
With its magnificent dome and grand interior, this could be the most elaborate Post Office you’ll ever set eyes on – and yes, you can still send letters from here. The correct name of the building is the Palacio de Comunicaciones, although the inscription on its façade has led to it being known as the Edificio de Correos y Telégrafos, or The Post and Telegraph Building. The palace was inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII and Queen Victoria Eugenia at the beginning of the last century and completed in 1923.
