What do you think of this one?
Years ago, it used to be quite a nice building, with a transparent facade revealing all its interior. But then, they HAD to add this horrible wing with a chimney on it, which turned the whole structure into a screaming disaster!

Doesn't look TOO terribly bad, though I definitely don't like it.

I agree there is a number of ugly (very ugly in some cases) towers in Benidorm, but its skyline as a whole is unique and extremely impressive! It feels like a Brazilian city, or a Hong Kong on the Mediterranean.

Ah, and I thought it looked much more Brazilian in this picture than the rest!

I think moustache used the word favela to mean "a very dense city with low quality buildings". Indeed, as crappy as some might consider it, Benidorm looks nothing like "the favelas of Europe". I think such a denomination would rather fit some poor, very dense neighborhoods of Istanbul, Athens or Lisbon.
