Minerva (La), Guadalajara

3.6
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.

  • It's a beautiful statue, great to look at while you're driving, but it's not really an attraction you can visit.. It's more of a decoration than a place to visit  more »
  • It is a very emblematic monument of guadalajara but nothing more... .no is that you can stay there.. .If you are enough tourist with that pass by car either go on Sunday because the street is closed

  • It's always a pleasure to see this statue in the middle of the Glorieta (roundabout) in one of the most pleasant parts of the city. The one bad thing I could say would be when they block this area off...  more »

  • 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.

Where to stay in Guadalajara

If you want proximity to historical attractions and convenient access to public transport, you'll be able to find something to suit any budget downtown, with the central thoroughfare of Avenida Juarez offering perhaps the widest range of options. Slightly southwest of the center, the neighborhood of Ciudad del Sol also offers a good selection of budget-friendly options, while in the southeast, Tlaquepaque--formerly a city in its own right--features some fancier hotels in a more relaxed setting.
