The Triunfo Gardens were originally a large Arab cemetery, founded in the thirteenth century. A strong wall enclosed the cemetery and there was a tower at the entrance of each of the access roads.

On one side, the compound was joined to the fortifications of the Albaicin, and on the other side was linked with the outskirts of Granada.

Through the centuries the population in Granada grew, and many buildings were built in the early sixteenth century. Therefore, a large part of the Triunfo Gardens became urbanized.

Under French rule, many people from Granada were hanged and shot here. The Triunfo Gardens remained a place of public execution until 1840.

In 1856 D. Manuel Gadea y Subiza, mayor of Granada, transformed the infamous place into a small park, with gardens and fountains. The opening of the Gran Vía de Colón and its subsequent expansion changed the Triunfo Gardens.

The architect Antonio Flores demolished the gardens, leaving only the isolated column of the monument to the Virgin until it was moved in 1960. The new Triunfo Gardens were created on the site formerly occupied by the old Plaza de Toros.
