Metro PanteonesMetro Panteones is best-known for its proximity to a number of massive cemeteries. Just north of the station are the Panteón Español (the biggest), plus those of Monte Sinaí, Americano, Alemán (German), and the Panteón Británico. The station logo is a reference to all of these cemeteries.

The Spanish cemetery began in 1883 as part of a nearby Spanish Hospital. The land, today about 100 hectares, was originally part of the El Blanco y el Prieto Hacienda.

On the other side of the neighborhood, to the south, are the equally enormous Sanctorum and Francés cemeteries.

For international visitors, that’s a lot of cemeteries to take in. Most will find some great comfort in the neighborhood’s two terrific public markets: the Mercado Argentina, and the Mercado Zacatito.

The station hosts some 13,000 travelers on weekdays. Trains to (evenings) and from (mornings) Cuatro Caminos will, however, get very crowded. If you’re planning a trip to Metro Panteones, remember to travel well outside of rush-hours, or in the opposite direction. Many visitors will begin a trip here, and then walk south towards the sites in Polanco. One call also return to the City Center with a trip, above ground, along the famous Mexico-Tacuba causeway. The link goes to a video with a lot more information.
