When Metro Pino Suárez first opened in September of 1969, it was already one of the most famous in the city. As a major transfer station, it connected two of the busiest metro lines. But more importantly was the discovery, during construction, of a major temple dedicated to Ehécatl.
The Pino Suárez Metro station is named for the vice president who was assassinated alongside President Francisco Madero in 1913. The culmination of the ten tragic days that led to the rise of the much hated Huerta, and his presidency, Pino Suárez is remembered for having fallen in the cause of the Mexican Revolution.
The part of Centro Histórico above the station is also known for it’s proximity to Metro Pino Suárez. The Church of Saint Michael the Archangel provided its former atrium, now called the Jardín San Miguel, for several of the southernmost entrances to this station.

Home to hundreds of clothing and footwear retailers, it’s just the most concentrated part of the city center’s fashion district. But don’t miss the adjoining Plaza San Lucas no matter how crowded it gets.
