Juanacatlán is a metro station on the Mexico City Metro.[1][2] It is located in Mexico City's Miguel Hidalgo borough in the San Miguel Chapultepec neighborhood, and lies on Line 1 of the Metro.[1][2]

Its logo depicts a butterfly, and its name comes from the Nahuatl word Xonacatlan, which means "place of onions" (sometimes mistakenly read as meaning "place of butterflies").[1] It is named for Juanacatlán in the state of Jalisco.[1] The station was opened on 11 April 1970.[3]

The station's building also contains the offices of the Metro workers' trade union, the windows of which depict the front of a metro train.[4][5] This station runs under Avenida Pedro Antonio de los Santos.[1] It serves the San Miguel Chapultepec and Condesa districts.[1]
