The Statue of Minerva is neat to see. At night they have the statue lit up and it looks really neat.

There is an enormous amount of traffic around the Glorieta Minerva and too hard to walk to the center to see ithe statue of goddess Minerva unless it's early on a holiday or Sunday morning. It is currently under reconstruction (November 2016)

I see Minerva very very often. Standing still always protecting the big-city. The government just hired not long ago experts to keep her in shape. The gardens around are just divine !

This is perhaps the image by which Guadalajara is mostly known. It is indeed very beautiful, and is near restaurants, malls and attractions. On Sunday mornings streets are closed to automobile traffic and can be visited by bicycle.

It is a momument to be seen from a car... More

This is a beautiful glorieta (when the traffic isn't bad) and adds a little history as this area used to be the "entrance" to the city when it was much smaller so, so many years ago.
