Minerva (La), Guadalajara

(260+ reviews on the web)
Monument
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.

  • A monument emblematic of the city of Guadalajara, who left it to deteriorate and turned it into something less class to allow to use the roundabout to brands or advertising. Now in remodeling and hope to be the guardian of our city.

  • Symbol of the city, must know it if you visit Guadalajara. This statue measures eight meters head, provided to and elegant looks glorious looking toward the West, guarding the city. This huge monument was designed by sculptor born in Aguascalientes, Pedro Medina Guzman and precisely in this State was made the statue and brought to Guadalajara in three parts

  • It's just a monument which distinguishes Guadalajara, its surroundings you can also find some of the best hotels of the city. The Minerva located at a roundabout which is difficult to access. E the only thing you can do to your taking pictures from afar, not worth it.

  • You won't be blown away but it will suffice for those late night cravings. Pastor and 'al vapor' are the way to go.
  • I do not recommend this place, the tacos are not that good and the place is really expensive.
  • expensive and not so delicious
  • Good seasoning. ... However the price if it is slightly higher... A place to eat fast and leave...
