Metro Isabel La Católica is a metro (subway) station on the Mexico City Metro.[1][2] It is located in the Colonia Centro neighborhood in the Cuauhtémoc borough in Mexico City's downtown.[1]

Its logo represents one of Christopher Columbus's three caravels.[1][2] Its name comes from nearby Avenida Isabel La Católica, named after Queen Isabel of Castile, who helped Columbus finance his journeys to the Americas.[1] The station was opened on 5 September 1969.[3]
