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.

  • It is a very controversial for local statue because many find it aesthetically ugly but anyway it is used as a reference and is an icon of the city. It is not a must-see, but if you want to see it they can spend there or lunch at the Acebejeno (a typical food at the front, with mariachis restaurant).
