History of La Victoria: Where resistance ended

La Victoria de Acentejo is where the resistance of the native Guanches people of Tenerife was finally ended by the Spanish invaders in 1494.

It was the scene of the second of two battles fought in the area that year - the first was at nearby La Matanza (which means 'the slaughter') and ended in ignominious defeat for the would-be conquistadores.

The leader of the invasion force, Alonso Fernández de Lugo, fled back to his base in Gran Canaria but soon returned at the head of a new army to crush the last Guanches stronghold in the archipelago and complete the Spanish capture of the islands.

The town of La Victoria de Acentejo sprang up on the site of the battle.

These days La Victoria follows more genteel pastimes, chief among which is the production of red wine.
