Villa El Salvador station

Villa El Salvador is a Lima Metro station which serves as the southern terminus of Line 1. The adjacent station is Parque Industrial. The station was inaugurated on 28 April 1990 as part of the first section of the line between Villa El Salvador and Atocongo. However, commercial service only started on 18 January 2003, was suspended in July 2003 due to the lack of funds, and resumed only on Saturdays and Sundays on 17 January 2004. The full revenue service started on 3 January 2012, with trains running to Miguel Grau.[1][2]
