In the present work we construct new examples of complete minimal H-equivariant hypersurfaces of symmetric spaces G/K. For that, we use the equivariant differential geometry method (Hsiang-Lawson). We divide our research in two parts, namely, symmetric spaces of non-compact and compact type. In the first case we study polar actions of subgroups H adapted to the Iwasawa decomposition G=KAN. In the second case we use the classification (Podesta-Thobergsson) of the subgroups H of Spin(9) which act with cohomogeneity two on the octonionc projective plane F_4/Spin(9). (AU)
