San alberto hurtado
San Alberto Hurtado, formerly known as Pila del Ganso, is a station on the Santiago Metro in Santiago, Chile. It is an underground station located between the stations Ecuador and Universidad de Santiago on the same line, below the Avenida Libertador General Bernardo O'Higgins and Toro Mazotte street, in the commune of Estación Central.
This station was opened under the name of Pila del Ganso, due to a decorative fountain located just above the station in the central reservation of the Alameda, close to Toro Mazotte street. In 2005, because of the recent canonization of Alberto Hurtado, the board of directors of Metro S.A. approved the change of name of the station to San Alberto Hurtado, whose sanctuary and Hogar de Cristo headquarters are located close to the station.
