Are you for real? Sao Paolo (definitely the best in South America), Belo Horizonte, Rio - where are they?

Bogotá and Caracas both look sweet, but the buildings in Santiago look nice as hell.

Sao Paolo and Rio come to mind. South American skylines have a lot of filler buildings.

Buenos Aires and Santiago have the most beautiful skyscrapers of South America, almost all cities in South America have a good skyline.

Buenos Aires is great!!!

For me the best one is Bogota because we can see, that Bogota also have another 3 little downtowns.........one is with..banks, there are like 5 tall buildings,.....another one is with the World Trade Center, Radisson Hotel, and the Samsung tower........and the las one is near the airport...that are modern buildings.........

While I gotta say that Sao Paulo is an incredible looking city with more buildings than I have ever seen in one city, Santiago beats it by a nose due to the setting and backdrop they have.....just by a nose though.

Rio is the one of the most striking cities in the world due mainly to it's backdrop and surroundings...you are right, there are many great skylines in South America!!

With all due respect this poll is flawed. I understand only wanting to use South American capitals, but you have to understand that in Brazil the capital is not the largest city for many reasons. In fact Brasilia I believe is the 9th largest city in Brazil.

Every other Latin American country utilizes their respective largest cities as their capital. For the best South American skyline the "only capitals" rule would need to be broken to include at least the top 3 Brazilian cities: Sao Paulo, Rio De Janeiro, and Belo Horizonte.

I'll try to post a photograph of Berrini's skyline or even Av. Paulista's skyline, I'll see if you still follow the "capital's only" rule.

I am between Sanitago and Buenos Aires. I love both of 'em, really beautiful skylines. But I think I rather the Andes instead el río de La Plata
