I would have multiple orgasms if a chaotic slum/favela was so lovely and nice like this Italian small jewel.

Well, there are things that slums and european old towns have in common, for example that they are a little chaotic and have a social infrastructure that is very tightly woven. If slum buildings were plastered and painted, I guess that the favelas of south american cities would be nearly as nice to look at as our old towns. Slums are man-made cities in contrast to planner-made cities (most of todays construction)

I disagree. European villages were built like this for a reason, usually in strategic positions (e.g. hilltop, or close to a river, etc). Besides, each village on this thread is the result of centuries of local building traditions.

Slums are just the result of uncontrolled urbanization. They rise to the outskirts of big cities in developing countries, they have no services, they are built with any cheap material that can be recycled (ranging from bricks to metal plates). They are just a place of emargination, whereas many of these villages were prosperous centers with strong identity, peculiar traditions and wealthy artisan activities.

Morano Calabro doesn't look so nice to me, it's too big (despite having an outstanding artistical heritage, check wikipedia), but european and italian villages cannot be compared at all with favelas.

P.S. favelas are often painted. But there's no way they can catch up to european villages. It's a completely different concept.

Painted favelas

Not one building has any historical value from any point of view

Favelas do of course not have the amenities nor the historical value of italian cities, but the thing they share is that they are small-scale. Houses are small and tightly packed. And with water, shops, electricity, police, schools etc. , the favelas could become nice towns. especially when compared to large scale social housing. At the beginning of the 20th century, many people looked down on the ones living in old towns, nowadays, you look down on slum-dwellers.

This "arid" landscape will become emerald green in spring. It's the wonderful of Castile: It sometimes seems a desert, but it is actually a nice meadow with some forests, lacoons and mountains, and a great ecological value.

Unfortunately, Napoleonic troops destroyed most of this town, but at least it survived to " Desarrollismo ".

I like very much the towns you choose, Silano, thanks.

Trosa in Sweden is a scandinavian gem. Truly a wonderful village.
