Minerva (La), Guadalajara

4.1
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.

  • For me it is the most important sculpture of the whole state for what it represents. It is a beautiful statue, but I can not help thinking that the Diana Huntresss is a much more beautiful monument made by the sculptor himself, so I can not give 5 stars to this landmark of the city.

  • We stayed in a hotel in front of this fountain and we were lucky enough to walk around it on a Sunday morning, because the city closes the street for people to walk and bike. All this made the atmosphere in front of the monument very attractive and comfortable to take pictures. On weekdays it is very difficult to appreciate the details of the fountain, due to the heavy traffic of cars.

  • The staple of the city is the Minerva. And if you come to the city you need to see her in al her glory. The place can be the meeting place for several causes from soccer victory to political demonstration. You might find some traffic around but it is worth going for q few turns.
  • Must go place if you visit Guadalajara....
  • Ok
  • Icon, missed monument if you visit Guadalajara. They adorn It beautiful at certain dates with plants or flowers around but always looks well cared for the pasture and cleanliness of the area. It Is One of the busiest roundabouts and the truth to cross and take a photo if it is something complicated, the ideal is to take advantage of a Sunday of recreational way, because they close the street and you can get closer.

  • Beautiful but dangerous Square for photos because it does not have easy access to pedestrians
