Candelaria is a Mexico City Metro rail station.[2][3][4] It is located in Venustiano Carranza municipality east of downtown Mexico City.[2] It lies along Lines 1 and 4.[2][3][4]

Name and iconography[edit]

The station logo depicts a swimming duck.[2][3][4] Its name and logo come from the surrounding neighbourhood of La Candelaria de los Patos (the Spanish word pato means "duck") where, only a few decades ago, many duck species lived and were bred and sold in a local market.[2]

General information[edit]

Metro Candelaria has a subsidiary name, Metro Palacio Legislativo ("Legislative Palace"), because of its proximity to the Palacio Legislativo de San Lázaro used by the Chamber of Deputies (Cámara de diputados), the lower house of the Mexican Congress.

Candelaria is a transfer station, with Line 1 running underground and Line 4 on an elevated surface viaduct. The station features an in-corridor cultural display.[2] The Line 1 platform for the station was opened on 5 September 1969, and the Line 4 platform was opened on 29 August 1981.[5] Service from Candeleria to Santa Anita started on 25 May 1982.[5]

This station has the only "Lost and Found" office in the entire Metro system. It displays the architecture of Félix Candela, who designed the Candelaria station and many buildings in Mexico, such as the San Lázaro metro station and the Palacio de los Deportes, which served as a venue during the 1968 Summer Olympics.[6]
