Owner description: This 14-foot-high double arch is similar to the Arc de Triomphe and was built in 1942 to commemorate the city's 400th anniversary.

OK, one of the places you will see on the Guad. city tour, which you should take if you don't know the city.

I've no idea why TravelAdvisor has this on here. It's just not that interesting and it's in the middle of a very busy street. The arch was the western entrance to Guadalajara and was build in the first third of the 20th Century. When built, the locals couldn't believe how far from town they built it. Guadalajara has grown enormously since that time and the arches seem more or less downtown these days. The Orozco museum is nearby. If you're going to that, you'll pass the arches.

This city is full of public fountains, statues, artistic monuments, but Los Arcos is the most beautiful monument by far. It stands as a grand gateway to the popular Minerva circle as you approach from the historic center. Also, there is a tourist information office in the arch's south pillar.
