São Paulo is the best. São Paulo é o verdadeiro e imbativel centro financeiro da América do Sul.

And by the way, those pictures you refer to are more enjoyable than those hundred of boring pictures you posted.

This is for the people that have difficulty with geography.


North America (includes Mexico City and Panama City)


South America (does not include Mexico City or Panama City)

It's sad that people are so uneducated that they actually need that.

I don`t understand why we stick so much to geography rather to culture and geoeconomics, we include Australia and the Pacific in Asia in this web and this is widely accepted roeund here. Culturally Mexico and Central America can be included with South America, both of them make up Latin America. In fact, Mexico and Mesoamerica are not included by users in the North American section of skyscrapers.com.
Any way, my ranking with my remarks for this wonderful part of the world would read as follows:

1 - Santiago de Chile. Good taste for an harmonious skyline with some interesting modern architecture.
2 - Rio de Janeiro. A realm of incredible contemporary architecture and high rises with history (starting from the fifties), the whole of it enhanced by an impressive landscape
3 - Bogotá. Modern and cosmopolitan, a few but well displayes tall buildings
4 - Quito. Surprising and lovely city, with a small skyline theat covers gradually all the medium layers, it deserves a second look.
5 - Ex aequo for Curitiba and Recife, no so well known Brazilian cities, the first boasts a well planned high rise series, and the second a real ecuatorial small scale Miami
6 - Buenos Aires. A city with a strong personality that should never lapse into the errors made by Sao Paulo.

Why the following ones have been discarded:
- Sao Paulo. We are talking skylines, but Sao Paulo is a massive and chaotic agglomeration of buildings 98% of them ugly and tasteless, no personnality at all.
- Caracas. Ugly, ugly and ugly. A strong taste of third world-ism, absolutely avoidable.
- Lima. Too low and cheap architecture (the modern one, but Lima´s virreinal colonial -Ciudad de los Reyes- and republican architecturas are just magnificient)

To think that being a Latin-American country culturally is equal to another Latin American is a mistake... Argentina, Chile and Uruguay are not the same that Panama, Cuba or Mexico for example, they talk the same language? Yes, but a part of that? ... they do not even have similar climates, history and they dont share the same culture...
On the other hand, the map posted is wrong: Mexico, USA and Canada ARE NORTH AMERICA, from Colombia down to Argentina and Chile is South America and the rest belongs to Central America.
Panama is Neither North America or South America, Panama belongs to Central America.
