My personal favourite is Sao Paulo. It's close though.

I think for sheer quality, Santiago wins. It only has a fraction of the number of skyscrapers as other cities like Rio de Janero or Recife, but it is memorable looking.

Rio is the best skyline for me..

It's tough separating BA and SP because they're both soooo massive and sprawling.

How come there's no pics on here of Salvador ? Is'nt it Brazil's third city ?

QUITO - Ecuador

I dont think that a skyline is what makes a city great at all, but following the thread, here are some skyline pictures of the Ecuadorian capital, a mid-size city of no great skyline, but landscape that compliments the city amazingly : )))

This video I got from "Journey to the End of the Night" movie (IMDB) shows very well the density and massive Sao Paulo City's skyline:
