Minerva is the Roman goddess of wisdom. As far as what I've searched, there is no special story in the creation of this statue, compared to other sculptors in many famous cities. Thus, I'd like to recommend to visit and see it only for the...More

Minerva means a lot to this city. Originally they dod not like or approve of the depiction of her, but have grown to see her as representing the city. You don't visit Minerva - you drive around her in a traffic circle. Sometimes the road...More

Great to ride by or stroll by on Sundays. On the westside of the city, it's where the via recreativa ends. Most days it's an island surrounded by shark infested waters -- that its, unrelenting traffic makes it impossible to enjoy from a pedestrian's point...More

There's nothing much to recommend about Minerva. The neighbourhood is great but the actual monument is difficult to see or access because of the constant roaring traffic that surrounds it.

Powerful misting fountains surround this statue. This interesting attraction is in a busy roundabout. Watch your rear view mirrors as you admire the beauty or you will crash.

You can visit this beautiful statue if you buy a ticket at the Plaza (Downtown) in a Tapatio Tours. Take you to Guadalajara Downtown

This status, as other noted, is in the middle of a round-about. It is rather large and a place that when something good happens, becomes a collection place for the locals to celebrate. I was there Jan 22, 2016 and there was some scaffolding on...More

This statue is impressive in size and the fountain is beautiful. It is also, as others have said, kind of a central figure for Guadalajara. If you are driving about on your own it is likely a local person will give out directions relative to...More
