Minerva (La), Guadalajara

4.2
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.

  • This is a reference when talking of Guadalajara. Sculptural banner that identifies this city and today has embellished with modifications to the roundabout where the sculpture is located.

  • Let's say that always or almost always pass by La Minerva is an icon of the city in addition to always be in perfect condition very cared for a photo you will have to cross traffic and be careful if you want to close if not one side of it with all the traffic You can enjoy much because you also have benches to sit awhile and relax admiring such sculpture

  • Classical statue, perhaps a little rhetoric and symbolic at the same time, set in a busy traffic circle and with little charm. Seeing anyway if you make it not to be hit by cars!

  • Beautiful, it is now even more beautiful than before they are doing a great job at keeping it clean, the grass, flowers and agaves look amazing together and give the statue a refined look, always nice to drive by that place. Recommended for tourists
  • Nice garden and statue of Minerva but it's located in the center of circular traffic,which makes it hard to cross.selfie at your own risk.
  • One of the best (if not THE best) monuments because of the maintenance it gets.
  • Awesome city centre but do watch it in the night too.The agave growing here look perfect
  • Beautyfull architecture and landmark of this great and now traffic crowded city!. Not pedesrrian friendly but it worth try to find where to park to visit the place!.
