nice idea!
Though I find it kind of inappropriate to build very tall buildings in low-residential cities, i mean if the city is small this means that it has a lot of free space outskirts , anyway nice pics there

That's actually not always the case; sometimes a city just as small city limits and not a lot of free space. That is why I always think it is more accurate to measure a city's size by it's metro area and density.

I don't think the author of the thread intended for a specific criteria to exist to be considered a "small city"; I think he wants to see cities with skylines that are not typical for a city of their size.

That pic is from 1985 or older XD

PD: Benidorm's official population is around 75000, but there's an estimated population of 400,000 in summer, wich I find exagerated.
It's go 27 buildings over 100 metres, 150 over 70m/20 floors, the three tallest are 200 (u/c), 186 and 158 metres tall
