Metro Zócalo

Historic center of Mexico City, Centro, 06000 Mexico City, CDMX, Mexico

Art Underground

The stations in Mexico City's subway system, the Metro, may not be famous for their century-old mosaics and tile work, as in New York City, or its painted ceilings and walls, as in Stockholm, but the capital's 100+ subway stations aren't devoid of art.

More than 24 murals can be found in stations across the system, including three at the Bellas Artes stop. A scale model of the Zócalo and key buildings ringing it can be found in the Zócalo station, while the remains of an Aztec-era pyramid can be seen inside the Pino Suarez station. And several stations host temporary exhibits; a full list of the subway system's permanent works and short-term shows can be found on the Metro's website.
