Forget it. Selecting the insane "capitals only" principle is the only way to make absolutely sure a hispanic city would be chosen since Brazil would be completely left out. Brazil's capital, Brasília, has a law against highrises and is Brazil's 5th largest city only.

If the title of the thread was "best skyline in a South American Capital"... but it isn't.

I think only 3 southamerican cities are inside the competition: Sao Paulo, Santiago and Buenos Aires. Caracas and other cities looks nice, but we are talking about the best skyline. SP has an incredible density of buildings, but not many good-looking ones. Santinago is not an urban jungle but it has nice buildings. And Buenos Aires has a little bit of both cities. But I think the best is Santiago: I prefer quality than quantity!
...And If we include the rest of latinamerican countries, Mexico City and Panama are also hard conteiners.

Because Sao Paulo don´t have SKYLINE, but SLYLINES

Sao Paulo have MULTIPLES Skylines, 10, 15, 20 areas in the city with a great skyline, with residential buildings or modern crystal buildings

Sao Paulo is the most diversity city in L.A

But if you do that, most of the cities would be from Brasil, as there is a lot of population there. I think that what you reclaim is so not fair...

Every single capital city in South America has more than one skyline area. The reason why many people dont like Sao Paulo is because most buildings are of a similar size and of poor quality. Theres not a core area which outstands from the rest.

Personally, I like BA's skyline much more than São Paulo's, I find Buenos Aires' skyline quite nice, while São Paulo is just plain, and boring, it's a sea of highrises, and while that is mind-blowing, it's composed of poor-quality buildings that don't really stand out or give any type of charm to the city.
I also think Buenos Aires' skyline fits with its environment, I really like it.

Is this the vote for your own country's city thread?

Yes it is, and if you dont like it you´re invited to leave.

PD: The Northamerican and the Eupean best skylines threads are not??
pd2: If it would be like you said 100 % Brazil´Capital would be on the top, not Argentina´s and Chile´s who´s have the half of the half of the half of the population of Brazil, wich means that Brazil have more quantity of forumers than Argentina and Chile.
