This posts have to be made of existing buildings or future buildings can also be added? Because there are a couple of fairly impressive buildings planned for the city...

I Like Bilbao

I like the density of Bilbao and the location of the metropolis , squeezed in the valley , bustling with life .
A great , underated city , who has changed a lot and is still one great construction site

I love cities built in valleys, steep gradients and dense buildings.

The skyline isn't great though and there are a worrying amount of gas powerstations....

BEAUTIFUL beautiful city... spectacular valley setting that deserves a 10...

but again, like so many other large cities, the skyline is quite poor.

5.5

I love the city of Bilbao, but the skyline isn't really that great (Thought all of that might change in a few years).


But, for now. I give it a 4/10. Nice density, but most of it's high-rises are pretty bland.
