Definition of village varies per country, in the most dense regions of Europe villages with population of several thousand people are quite common, for example, for quite some time I lived in a lovely village called Vinkeveen and despite having a population of approximately 10,000 people it's still a village.

Even in Poland we meet big ad small villages, because amount of people is not the only indicator. Bałuty in Łódź was once a village (officialy) that had more than a 100000 people living there. Only because of the speed of urbanization. But that is not a point - I think character of settlement is most important here.
For example: how is that a village? We got thread about lovely towns and cities, so please stay on topic.

I've checked how Vinkeveen looks and well, it looks like village. It's not matter of population and size, villages have generally rural character with mostly individual houses. 3 floor contiguous tenaments, as we see here often, are definitely urban kind of architecture. If towns are also allowed here then the thread title is misleading.

oh god... why?

i just explained that the villages with detached houses are typical for central europe or northern regions but they don't even exist in mediterranean counties...

ronda is of course a city but the number of the floors and contiguous character of buildings depends on the development history of a country and process of evolution of settlements.

Perhaps I have put my words unclear, by individual I meant 1 house -> 1 family, of course they can be connected which is often a case in Central Europe too. I don't know how it is in Italy but if in Italian villages people live in flats then what is a difference between a town and a village?

no these are not flats, most of them are inhabited by one family on all the floors, these houses are mostly very narrow so in the villages there are one or two rooms per floor.

this is the point. in poland both towns and villages were founded with a clear purpose of their future function. the settlements "were made" for different purposes and for this reason have very different building types and spatial schemes. in southern europe the settlements evolved gradually for example from roman villas (this is the etymology of the word village) and in time became villages, then boroughs and in the end cities. there's no a clear boundary between these phases of evolution. the difference is mainly in the economy of the settlement (the importance of the handicraft and commerce), presence of civic infrastructure and the size of the settlement rather than it's original destination, spatial pattern or housing type.

But you have San Antonio Riverwalk. I still consider that one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen at Christmas, and I have been many places.

Wow, I am shocked that the village of Levanzo is Italian and not Greek.

Well, maybe Ronda is not the best example and I agree with you. Nevermind, jumping_jack explanation was great. In Spain, no matter if a fishermen village or a farmer's place, people tend to live close to each other.
