From where do you get the Skyline?

I've seen that most of the voted cities could not be observed from far away, into the sea or inland, because most o them are surounded by mountains. It's really difficult to say that those are impressive Skylines. I need space to get the real Skyline of a city. Don't you?

I think it goes to Santiago. BsAs has good density, but it's not impressive, only Puerto Madero that is distant of the dense cluster.

Igualmente la mayoria de los edificios de más de 30 pisos son residenciales, por lo que no suman muchos metros. En esta lista aparecen casi todos los rascacielos de Buenos Aires con la altura en metros:

My top 5:

1. Santiago.
2. Buenos Aires.
3. Brasilia.
4. Caracas.
5. Bogotá.

But if Sao Paulo and Rio were in the poll the would have the 2º and 3º place. I think Santiago is the best because it doesn't look as chaotic as the other South American cities, in fact it looks more like North American Cities (it reminds me Philadelphia).

I agree with you, Santiago has a very chic and beautiful skyline not too chatic (but that b-coz it's growing up). I have to say that the first of those pictures of Santiago Skyline are a bit old .. actually Titanium Tower is already build and it has 200mts, others tower also has been built

u can go to Chilean forum and enter to the Titanium La Portada Thread , a chilean member has posted a very good panoramics about Santiago Financial district.

My vote goes to

Santiago

and then,

Buenos Aires
Bogotá
Caracas
Lima

Of course, if Sao Paulo was here you know who the vote would go to. The poll is really biased. And btw, the city of Medellín does not have a better skyline than the colombian capital, it is quite impressive for a city it's size though.

Santiago by far... buenos aires skyline is very dull and quite boring (with all due respect of course)
