The Garden of Madness is a location in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow.


A stony, dank area, overrun with ivies, trees, roots and gloom. It functions as the castle's greenhouse, where various types of plants grow and thrive. The upper rooms, however, seem to lack the sustenance to maintain plant life. It's located at the center of the castle and connects to the Wizardry Lab, Dark Chapel, Demon Guest House, Subterranean Hell and Cursed Clock Tower.

In this area Soma has his first encounter against Dario, but first he'll have to pay a visit to the Dark Chapel in order to obtain Malphas's soul, which will allow him to perform double jumps (actually having to confront Dmitrii first along the way).

At the center of the Garden of Madness lies a room where an important event takes place later in the game, and which decides the fate of everyone.
