This well preserved peace of history still functions today as a post office come market with many different shop stalls throughout. Popular with the tourists it is worth a check out. The building alone is impressive and stylish in its colonial splendour.

We walked to see the Post Office and enjoyed the interior especially seeing where all the old ways of communication were. Obviously a popular place to have photo taken if you are getting married too!
