Metro Candelaria is on lines 1 and 4 of the in the Venustiano Carranza alcaldia.

The name is from that of the colonia (neighborhood) Candelaria de los Patos. It was at one time a wetland on the edge of Lake Texcoco known for the number of waterfowl and migratory birds. This also explains the station’s logo.

Candelaria, rather than the candelabra many English speakers perceive it to mean, is actually February 2, the holy day commemorating the presentation of the Christ child in the temple.

Metro Candelaria is also home to the primary Lost and Found center for the entire metro system. If you lose something in the Metro, however, it should be reported to the station chief of the station nearest to the loss.

The Office of Lost Objects (
Oficina de Objetos Extraviados)
is in Metro Candelaria in the passageway between Lines 1 and 4.

You can inquire there,
Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
You will need an official ID to recover something based on a description.
