The station opened on 13 January 1987 when Line 6 was extended from Cuatro Caminos to Ciudad Universitaria.[3] At the time, it was one of the deepest stations in the network, at some 40 m (130 ft) beneath the surface. The platforms feature tile mosaics of towers and swords, referencing the historical figure Guzmán el Bueno. On 12 February 1999, the Line 7 platforms were inaugurated as part of an extension of the line from Canal to Valdezarza.[4] At the same time, elevators were installed, making the station accessible.
