“A very visible historical landmark of the city.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

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 social events that is easy to get too. It has also been recently adopted as the new picture you will see on all new Jalisco state, licence plates, spreading it´s fame throughout the country!

“A statue in a big traffic circle. Maybe worth a photo from the car.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

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.

“It's a Statue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

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.
