Armênia is a station on Line 1 (Blue) of the São Paulo Metro.[1]

The station was opened on 26 September 1975 with the name Ponte Pequena (code PPQ), in reference to the Ponte Pequena borough and homonym bridge that existed over the Tamanduateí River in that place (ponte pequena is Portuguese for "small bridge"). It was renamed on 12 November 1985 to Armênia Station, as a tribute to the large Armenian community living in São Paulo.
