Metro Cerro de la Estrella (English: Hill of the Stars) is an underground station along Line 8 of the metro of Mexico City.[1][2][3] The station is located along the Calzada Ermita-Iztapalapa and serves the Colonia Hidalgo y Mina neighborhood within the Iztapalapa borough on the east side of the city.[1] The station is named for the Cerro de la Estrella – a mesoamerican archaeological site located nearby.[1][4] It was opened on 20 July 1994.[5]

The station's logo is the silhouette of a hill with three crosses on it and a star in the sky.[1][2]

In spring during Easter the station sees heavy traffic for spectators who travel to Cerro de la Estrella to watch Passion of the Christ procession events.[6][7]
