    Located in the Civic Center (Fulton Street), is a beautiful monument of granite with a bronze statue of the goddess Minerva in its top and down, bas-reliefs of notables of California. Perfect for a quick visit.

    Beautiful monument that brings the female figure of Minerva, Goddess of wisdom and war. The monument depicts still important characters of the past. Is located in the Civic Center of San Francisco.

    Beautiful statue but for some reason this area always seems over populated with homeless. It's cold and there's not very much shelter so it doesn't seem like a good place to sleep but it's always crowded.

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
