Sevilla is a station on Line 1 the Mexico City Metro.[2][3] It is located in the Cuauhtémoc borough in the centre of Mexico City, on Avenida Chapultepec and Sevilla street.[2] It serves colonias Roma and Juárez.[2]

Iconography[edit]

The station logo depicts an aqueduct.[2] This is because above the station are the remains of a colonial era aqueduct, built in 1779, that ran between Chapultepec and Salto del Agua fountain.[2] It had 904 arches and a total length of some 3.7 kilometres (2.3 mi).[2] The station is named for the Province of Seville in Spain.[2]

General information[edit]
