Central Post Office

In 1748 it was a family residence that later served as Police Station, Fire Department, and Jail.

At the corner of Buenos Aires St. and Córdoba St. the Andalusian Mateo Fernández built in 1748 the residence that later would become the Police Station. There was a new building on the same site by Pascual Páez in 1864. Probably, it was the most significant work, with its Italian style of two floors and iron balcony. It housed the Police Station, Fire Department, and Jail, until it became the Central Post Office. The current building was designed by architect Ángel Guido, who planned the highest tower in the city at that time, although later the height was lowered and crowned with a French Renaissance style. In 1997 it was declared National Heritage Site.
