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 one-side. It did not take away from the effect though. If you can plan it... 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 Minerva Roundabout. For the U.S. driver, also, it is impressive to see a five-lane-wide traffic... More

you CAN stop a few blocks near, but if there is regular traffic it will be impossible to get a closeup, unless traffic is being deviated, and it DOES happen also, it is a nice spot to get a memory picture and its surrounded by restaurants, car agencies, drugstore and a bowling ale.

The statue is impressive in size and seems to be emblematic in the city of Guadalajara. It is almost as you have not been to Guadalajara if you don't go by the Minerva. Is located in the middle of a traffic circle so enjoying it must be somewhat of a quickie thing. Locals are very proud and proud of their... More

If you have to meet someone and you've never been in Guadalajara, this is definitely the easiest point to reach from airport, bus station, downtown, nightlife area, Zapopan, etc. It is a huge round-shaped square with a great fountain in the middle. And right atop the fountain stands the "hunting Diana" welcoming visitors to central Guadalajara. Around it are the... More

This is one of the city's best monuments. It is more impressive when driving by it at night because of the lights and the water feature. Unfortunately, some times the city fills the surroundings with advertisement or the water feature is off which makes the monument look not as impressive as it can be.

Well, I don't know much about Minerva, but I took a double decker bus tour around the city and got a photo of Minerva. I would recommend the double-decker bus ride because I saw things I never would have seen otherwise.

Not much to do there. If one is near, then go take a look do not take a special trip. It is interesting that Guadalajara some how took Minerva as a mascot!

Not too impressive for me... I would rate between 2 and 3 stars. It is at the centre of a roundabout with lots of very carefully planted agave all around and a water feature which adds interest to the place. Just drive by to see it... not worth if you need to get there on foot!

Not sure why, but I love this statue. My favorite in the world since my mother told me it was a girl when I was little. I woman with a shield and sword. What? I like her !! The city does a great job of keeping her and the fountain in great shape. Love her !!
