Barcelona, but Spain and Portugal are loaded with pretty towns.

I've never been to Spain, but at least I've read some good books, full of photographies. I especially remember two of them: "The presence of Spain" (1964), and one published by a magazine called "Life" (1963).
In my opinion, Madrid has always been marvellous. Its ellegance is too much for my eyes.
Then, I would choose Seville, Santiago de Compostela, and Lisbon (the latter, capital of a country whose history, landscapes, culture, etc., has been almost unknown, but very interesting and full of mistery).
Then, well, perhaps Coimbra, Oporto (which is its English name?), Toledo, Córdoba, Segovia, and Granada. (mmmm, why not to include Barcelona? It is also located in front of the sea, just like my city, but there is something that haven't touched me yet).

As we know, choosing a favourite city in the Iberian peninsula is such a difficult task. Spain and Portugal have tons of cities to show the tourist and the traveller.

I don't have a clue. Pics showcasing Lisbon and Barcelona are nice, though I'm sure there are other cities/towns in Iberian peninsula that are 100 times more beautiful.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Few cities on the Iberian peninsula can match Barcelona's 19th century artistic heritage and its gothic heritage. Name one metropolis where you still have medieval lanes. Of course there are fully preserved mediaeval towns in the Iberian Peninsula that might be more cosy but we are talking about cities here.

we are talking about beauty, not about medieval remainings.

in any case, Sevilla, Granada, Cadiz, Ronda, Madrid, Lisboa, Porto, Madrid, Santander, Girona, Burgos come inmediatly to my mind when I think of beauty in the Iberian peninsula, then the rest including BCN

The reason why internet fora are so annoying is that people try to impose their view on others and use silly wording. Anyway I'm having a debate with somebody called Luli Pop.

Guille, we all know that. He's a troll. A frustrated person. Just ignore him or her.

Of course Barcelona is beautiful... Someone doubting about it may be kidding You don't like Barcelona? ok, it's perfectly possible, some people don't like caviar.

I can say by pics that Madrid, Seville and Toledo. But Barcelona, Lisbon and Salamanca are not bad either
