Even though I'm Brazilian I'd say Santiago has the most impressive skyline of all South American cities. And mostly because of the Andes in the background which gives it a lovely white touch in the grey city skyline.

1) Santiago

2) Rio, since nature's skyline is still more beautiful than men's. And Rio, from all the cities in the planet, has been more than blessed in this sense

3) The city of São Paulo is more than one city in itself and deserves at least a third place in my list.

I think Santiago stands not only because of the background, but also by its gorgeous buildings.

Buenos Aires, for me, the best in South America.

mmmm...
For me, the skyline of Santiago, goes a little of the "typical" South America is not a mass so monotonous, as seen in some cities on the continent, hence my vote.

It's what I've seen, maybe I'm hurrying. I saw La Paz and Caracas also very good, but I do not find attractive
