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.

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.

Opinions about Triunfo in Granada
Fountains at night and the Royal Hospital
We found this place by chance, since it was near our hotel. It is more of a square than a garden, but the large fountain offers a nice show at night. It shines in different colors. We were curious about the building behind the fountain, and it turned out to be a wonderful place: the Royal Hospital (Hospital Real). Very recommended!
