Traditionally it was thought that the name of this chapel reflected the royalist victory in the “Guerra de las Germanías” (Revolt of the Brotherhoods), but it seems from documentation found that it already had this name at the end of the 15th century when the Carmelite convent of La Victoria was founded, and it was then that the chapel was dedicated to the Mare de Déu (Mother of God). But what is known is that because of the “Germanías” and after victory by the king’s supporters, veneration for the Mare de Déu de la Victòria increased and caused the appearance of the chapel to change, which until this point had been a small place of prayer and worship. Locally it is said that its dedication to the Mare de Déu de la Victòria brought about other victories, especially against pirate attacks during the 16th and 17th centuries.
At the end of the 16th century, the Carmelites left the building and a period of abandonment began, which led to the governors of the city of Alcúdia’s decision to reconstruct it.
In 1678, the master mason Pere Torrendell began construction of the new church, in Baroque style.
The Oratory of the Virgen de La Victòriahas a notably defensive character reflected in its walls that are high, thick and sturdy. It is situated on the Cap des Pinar peninsula, approximately 7 km from Alcúdia.
