General information[edit]

The station is located south of the city center, at the intersection between Avenida de los Insurgentes, Eje 7 Sur Extremadura, and Eje 7 Félix Cuevas, in the Benito Juárez borough. The station, thus, receives its name from being at the southern section of the Avenida de los Insurgentes.

The icon for the station depicts Miguel Hidalgo and José Morelos, two of the main rebel leaders during the Mexican War of Independence.[4]

The stations serves the following neighborhoods: Colonia del Valle, Tlacoquemecatl del Valle, Extremadura Insurgentes, and San José Insurgentes.

In the initial Line 12 plans, the station was to be named Extremadura, due to its location at the intersection of Avenida de los Insurgentes Sur and Eje 7 Sur, which receives the name of Félix Cuevas to the east of Avenida de los Insurgentes, and Extremadura to the west of the Insurgentes avenue.[5]
