Minerva (La), Guadalajara

(3.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Representing the Roman goddess of the same name, Minerva (La) acts as a symbol of the city. The towering statue holds a long spear pointing upward and a shield as she stands on a pedestal in a fountain. The attraction serves as a meeting place for locals, but residents are proud to show off the statue to tourists, too. A roundabout surrounds the statue, so if you intend to drive to visit, be careful to watch the road. You can also take public transportation to the site and snaps photos from across the road, or go at night to see the statue lit up in varying colors. Arrange to visit Minerva (La) and other attractions in Guadalajara using our Guadalajara vacation planner.

  • The sculpture has no great value, but the location and arrangement of gardening by the tequila Herradura brand are very good.

  • The Statue of Minerva is neat to see. At night they have the statue lit up and it looks really neat.  more »
  • Is beautiful, difficult to photograph in an ordinary day, given that is in the center of the roundabout but excellent reference point to follow the track.
