Santa Ana is a transfer station between the Line 2 and Line 5 of the Santiago Metro. It was initially a single-line station on the Line 2, subsequently in 1998, the station begins to be adapted to become a transfer station, as a part of the extension of the Line 5 from Baquedano metro station to Santa Ana station, in which was used the New Austrian Tunnelling method.[1]

The older portion of the station occupies part of the central reservation of the Autopista Central, which is sunked. Two street-level mezzanines at the northern and southern extremes of the station are connected with bridges traversing the highway.

The station receives its name from the nearby Santa Ana church.
