Metro Mixcoac is a station on Line 7 and Line 12 of the Mexico City Metro.[1] The station serves both lines as a transfer station and as the northwestern terminus of Line 12.[1]

It runs deep under Avenida Revolución, a main thoroughfare in Mexico City.[2][3] It serves the Mixcoac area of the city.[2] There are two main entrances to the station: one in the west sidewalk of the aforementioned avenue and the other in a small plaza between Avenida Revolución, Avenida Patriotismo, Eje 7 Sur Extremadura and Calle Empresa. The station logo depicts a snake because the Nahuatl name Mixcoac means "Nest of Cloud Serpents".[2][3] The station opened on 19 December 1985.[4]
