Edificio de Correos y Telegrafos

Edificio de Correos y Telegrafos


Valencia, Spain (ES)
Construction of the Central Post Office or Correos building began in 1915 and was finished seven years later. It was designed by the architect Miguel Angel Navarro, and its design is clearly eclectic, the dominant style at the time. The most noteworthy feature of the building is the main entrance. It's set out from the rest of the structure and flanked by double Ionic columns and semi-circular arches, crowned with impressive allegorical figures on top. The building is found on central Plaza del Ayuntamiento, and serves as a reference point for passers-by. It's well-worth stopping in just to buy stamps and mail off those postcards.
