Prounounce "evidencia"

Since it ends in a vowel, the second to last syllable should be stressed. This is the "ci," but it seems that native spanish speakers emphasize the "den." I'm confused.

The division of syllables is as follows:
so we stress "den", the last syllable is a diptong; when we have a weak vowel: i or u... united with a strong vowel: a, e or o it forms a diptong and becomes one syllable. In some words the diptong is separated indicated by an accent on the week vowel. (i.e. the word día... the i has an accent so we have two syllables dí-a)
