This station is busier every 28th day of each month, due to the nearby San Judas Tadeo Roman Catholic shrine and place of pilgrimage. It also attracts pilgrims because of a set of floor tiles that are stained in such a way that the silhouette of the Virgin of Guadalupe can be made out; the section of floor has since been removed and put on display in a shrine at one of the station's entrances.
