Metro Allende is a station on Line 2 of the Mexico City Metro system.[1][2] It is located in the Colonia Centro district of the Cuauhtémoc borough of Mexico City, on Tacuba street west of the main square in downtown.[1]

General information[edit]

Station logo

The logo represents the bust of general Ignacio Allende, one of the principal instigators of the Mexican War of Independence of 1810.[1] The station opened on 14 September 1970.[3]

The station has the peculiar feature that its platforms are not directly connected underground as it is the case with most stations in the system. In order to change platforms at Allende one has to exit the station and cross the street, thus making it necessary to pay the fare again, a feature only shared with Metro Tezozómoc in Line 6.
