Royal Botanical Garden

After 18 months of planning, the third garden in the international network of Gardens for Peace was dedicated on the grounds of the Royal Botanical Garden (Real Jardin Botanico) in Madrid, Spain, on November 7, 1991.

The site for the Madrid Garden for Peace was selected because of its location off the main pathway and because the circular area is surrounded by foliage which forms a canopy overhead, providing a quiet sanctuary. The garden features a sculpture of a young girl holding a dahlia, which was created by renowned Madrid artist Julio L.Hernandez.
