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.

  • No pude tomar buenas fotografías porque estaban haciendo mantenimiento y había andamios alrededor. Tomé el turibus de tapatío tours y el recorrido por Guadalajara pasa por ahí, dan la opción de bajar,...  more »
