Victoria Square, also called Plaza de la Victoria, is a square located in the Almendral sector of the city of Valparaíso, Chile, which is has an important heritage since it includes valuable statues and plant species.
The square was created as such in the first half of the 19th century, previously taking the names of Plaza Nueva and Plaza de Orrego.

The square takes its current name in honor of the Chilean triumph in the War against the Peru-Bolivian Confederation.
