I'm Brazilian. Actually I think Curitiba and Florianópolis are underrated.

Curitiba, capital of Paraná






Florianópolis, capital of Santa Catarina

But Curitiba and Florianopolis are both very reknown in Latam. The first for its good transportation system and quality of life and the second one for its beaches, girls and summer parties. And both are much smaller than BH. BH is very unknown. I cant associate anything to that city and its huge.

Oh damn, in my post above I said Joinville but in my mind I was referring to Florianopolis.

BTW if you're a football fan there's a few things you'll probably know about BH, especially the Mineirao (one of the best stadiums ever to be built) and the two clubs. If you're an arts connaisseur you'll know about the museum area on the other side of the lakes where the sports arenas are.

VALENCIA

....and not, not Valencia, Spain...
that is the first thing to think why Valencia, Venezuela is underrated.
It has almost 2 millions of inhabitants, but nobody knows Valencia, Venezuela abroad, even in LatAm:

All cities in the Netherlands outside of Amsterdam. It sometimes seems people think Amsterdam is the only Dutch city, but there are at least 10 other cities in the country worth visiting. An example is my hometown Nijmegen:

I have to say a lot of the cities in this thread are not underated at all, but apparently are just favourites of whoever posts here!

I'd say Victoria is one of Canada's most underrated cities but since that has already been detailed, I'll add Ottawa to the mix as I think it doesn't get quite the appreciation it deserves. Let's take a look!

It's urban

https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/14807341883


Lots to do in the winter time

https://www.flickr.com/photos/sabriirmak/4393834080

Has a lot of museums, art galleries

Old a new architecture

And is the national capital

From the American perspective I would say that Winnipeg is the most underrated Canadian city. It has no profile what so ever in this country but is actually a pretty cool place with some good urban fabric, strong cultural life, and interesting people.

That looks like Guilin: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guilin

It is a very popular tourist destination in China.

Mar del Plata

¿What is interesting and underrated?

Check the infinite variations on this residential style. Every house has an individual design, and it goes for kilometers and kilometers.
Check the entire city.

I dont understand how the hell a house would be representative for a city, my city has several good looking houses, but those ones cannot be considered as representatives. I think city pics should be panoramics or more generalized shots.
