Pasteur - AMIA is a station on Line B of the Buenos Aires Underground.[1][2][3]

It is located in the Balvanera barrio, at the intersection of Avenida Corrientes and Calle Pasteur, and named after the latter. In 2015, murals and monuments commemorating the 1994 AMIA bombing (which took place nearby) were set up in the station, while proposals were put forward to change the name of the station to Pasteur - AMIA.[4] This was approved in July 2015, and the station was renamed.[5]
