It literally is just a mythological statue of Minerva in the middle of a very busy round about. Nothing more, nothing less.

We found a good restaurant near here, and enjoyed meandering in the sun near La Minerva. Still in the city without being downtown, so it was nice to see a few different things.

This huge metal statue is right out of Greek Mythlogy. A very big daughter of Zues, looks over the west side of this big city!

This extra large statue of the Roman goddess Minerva, is well recognized not only for it´s cental location that devides the East and West sides of the city of Guadalajara, but for it´s new rennovation to make the streets that encircle it much wider. This allows for it to be used as a public venue for speaches, concerts and many... More

It is located at an intersection of major national highways, so it will be busy around the statue. If it is on your way to something else, drive by it and snap a photo, but don't count on spending much time there.

Not something you walk to, it's a traffic circle. More of a looky-loo in your taxi as you drive by. Beautiful at night, pride of the city.
