The most beautiful city in the Iberian penninsula

Spain and Portugal have so many beautiful towns and cities, and WW2 had a minimal effect on them too. I was wondering what cities you find the most beautiful, in both Spain and Portugal.

I really love Lisbon and Seville. Seville especially.

I love Lisbon myself. It is special. It has amazing setting, character and architecture.

As for Madrid. Few cities in the world can match its imposing 19th century architecture.

My favorites are in no particular order. Sevilla, Porto, Coimbra, Salamanca, Barcelona, Toledo, Madrid, Girona and Lisbon.

I can speak just about my favourites, and as Ribarca does, no special order here either:

Seville, Lisbon, Porto, San Sebastian, Barcelona, Cádiz, Girona, Bilbao, Córdoba, Granada, Caceres, Salamanca, Segovia, Vitoria Gasteiz, Santander, Santiago de Compostela, Cuenca, are among my loved cities.

If we talk about regions or smaller cities, don´t miss: Sagres and Tavira, Algarve in general. Ribera do Duoro. Grazalema, Cádiz South coast, Ordesa y Monte Perdido, Basque Coast, Asturias, Northern Costa Brava, Cabo de Gata, Cazorla, Albarracin,Rias Baixas region, Costa da Morte....jut to name a few, Iberian peninsula is full of hot spots worthing to be visited time after time.

I don't know enough cities to decide, but I really don't think Barcelona would be between the most beautiful cities of the peninsula.

I have no doubt BCN is THE most overrated city in the world.
