The Alchemy Laboratory (錬金研究棟 Renkin Kenkyūdō?) is a stage in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Castlevania Judgment and Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

In Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, this is where Dracula's servants conduct their unholy experiments, as evidenced by the side-rooms containing vials and arcane statues. Geometrically strange architecture hides itself behind the large pillars and dark walls.

Geography

This is the second stage accessible in the game and is entered shortly beyond the tower where you first meet Death in the Castle Entrance to the right. It leads to the Marble Gallery. Once you have a Jewel of Open (purchased from the Master Librarian), you can backtrack and enter the Chapel Tower to the left. Its counterpart in the Reverse Castle is the Necromancy Laboratory.
