General information[edit]

The station logo depicts a helmet of the type used by the Spanish conquerors (conquistadores) who, led by Hernán Cortés, invaded the Aztec empire in the 16th century.[2] The name of this station comes from the area in which it is now located, which was known as the Villa de Cortés in colonial times.[2] The metro station opened on August 1, 1970.[4]
