The memorials in Alexandra Garden serve as remembrance to several conflicts and disasters, including the Spanish Civil war.
Alexandria Gardens features several memorials, including the Welsh National War memorial and plaques to victims of thalidomide and the Spanish Civil war.
Spanish teacher Carla Garre says, “Alexandra Gardens is a beautiful place for a walk or a bike ride. I love going there in spring because of the Cherry blossom Trees, and when it´s a windy day it covers all in pink, beautiful, and [it’s] also very close to University, no excuses to miss out!”
“We were really surprised when we saw [the memorial] for the first time! It shocked us that 36 Welshmen died in our civil war and I didn’t even know about Wales when I lived in Spain,” Says Carla Garre.
