The Victoria Gardens can be found in La Orotava in northern Tenerife. Inaugurated in the 19th century, they are the work of French artist, Adolph Coquet.
Two centuries later, the Victoria Gardens have become an emblem of La Orotava; they couple well with the stately atmosphere that envelops the community.
The gardens are of aristocratic origin as they were created by order of the De Ponte family, to bury the Marquis of Quinta Roja, following the Catholic Church’s refusal of his Christian burial due to his connection with masonry. In the end, the Marquis was granted a Christian burial, but the gardens still stand, adding beauty to the northern part of the island.
