Minerva (La), Guadalajara

3.6
#8 of 41 in Sightseeing in Guadalajara
Monument Tourist Spot
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.

  • You won't be blown away but it will suffice for those late night cravings. Pastor and 'al vapor' are the way to go.
  • Always open, always tasty.
  • Soon buenoss
  • I do not recommend this place, the tacos are not that good and the place is really expensive.
  • expensive and not so delicious
