Most people just walk by the Old Post Office, heading to or from the Old Town. It is an imposing structure at three and a half stories. Originally built in the late 19th c in Second Empire style, several Beaux Arts’ aspects were added with reconstruction commencing in 1913. A statue of Francois de Laval stands in front of the building. It can also be admired from across the street at the Parc du Montmorency.
