#2 Park Güell

Another design made by Gaudí, this one is an open air park that also has naturalistic style and doesn't have any straight angles, there are only wavy forms. The park has lots of green, the constructions are very colorful, like the famous dragon fountain, and the views of the skyline of the city are amazing!
