Metro Niños Héroes / Poder Judicial CDMX is a busy underground station along Line 3 of the Mexico City Metro. In the Doctores neighborhood, in 2019 the station welcomed an average ridership of 39,000 passengers every day.
In 2019, the Metro changed the station name to reflect the Poder Judicial CDMX. The Metro authority then changed the logo, too. The Poder Judicial is part of the “Ciudad Judicial,” practically a neighborhood of city judicial and court buildings. These are, in the main, arranged along Avenida Niños Héroes, between this station and Metro Balderas to the immediate north.
The most architecturally interesting of these is the Palacio de Justicia at 132 Avenida Niños Héroes. The Judicial City complex has grown considerably since. But this most inspiring building was completed in 1964. It was designed by the acclaimed architect Juan Sordo Madaleno in collaboration with José Adolfo Wiechers.
