It's a statue of a local celebrity "Selena". There is information on the floor under the statue and also an audio information about the statue.

We were walking to see a bit of the area around the restaurant we had visited and came upon this memorial. It is a very moving memorial for the Tejano star. I learned some from the Spanish/English recording inside the memorial.

My husband and I saw the Selena's Seawall Statue as we were walking along the Corpus Christ Seawall. The statue is in a sheltered dome like gazebo. It is a nice place to take a break in the shade as well.

Easy to find, easy parking, not a lot of tourists. Quick stop if you are driving down the main road.

Located in the downtown of Corpus on the scenic shoreline, Selena is still the sweetheart of Corpus. If you doubt this, try taking a picture of the stature. If you really want a picture, go very early and snap the shot. There always seemed to...More

If you are a Selena fan, then you have to go to the Mirador de la Flor. It was as beautiful as I envisioned it to be.

The museum was okay. Didn't really live up to my expectations. There was also a radio or something with the statue that seemed to be playing the only song. Not to mention, the people walking by the statue were extremely obnoxious, screaming bad words! It...More

This is a beautiful memorial set on the beachside. People from all over visit here daily. When it's real hot I wouldn't suggest a stop. However it is worth it for a huge Selena fan like my daughter.

Amazing the impact Selena had on the music industry and so sweet she is remembered by her hometown. It's also a great place to walk and take in the city sights and the bay.

Grave site, no. It is a little hard to find because there's no signs showing where it is at. The museum does have a cost but it's like less than 5 dollars.

No. Just take I37 down to Corpus. Her statute is on North Shoreline Blvd and her grave is at Seaside Memorial Cemetery on Ocean Dr

No bridges other than overpasses along I-37. In fact I-37 empties out onto North Shoreline Blvd just a few blocks from the Selena statue on the corner of Shoreline Blvd and Peoples Street. Shoreline is a divided Blvd so keep... More
