That's because the only way for Hispanic cities to guarantee their victory is by excluding Brazil, and the only way to exclude Brazil is by arbitrarily including only political capitals in the poll. It's like a Mexican forumer polling which is the best skyline in North America: Mexico City, Washington DC, Nassau or Ottawa?

Or which is the best skyline in Australasia: Jakarta, Por Moresby, Wellington or Canberra?

It's pathetic.

The choices are South American capitals only. Thread title should be renamed.

So let's reboot this thread, with the biggest cities in S.A. and C.A. Including Mexico... not only capitals, cities like Rio, Sao Paulo, Monterrey, Medellin, deserves to be here...

let's face it. the only skylines anyone can actually pick out from the pictures are in buenos aires and santiago, maybe lima. the rest of the cities have a small cluster of small buildings. I don't know why sao paulo isn't included in this pole. but still, sao paulo is all highrises, I can't discern a decent skyline. just an opinion don't get mad.

Sao Paulo skyline is not what is considered as "beautiful", so I don't see the point of some forumers, who state that SP would top the poll easily. ¿?

Cartagena has a very good skyline, similar type of Panama's city one.

Sao Paulo slyline is massive, the most massive of latin america, but it's not a very beatiful skyline.

Of course SP needs to be in the pool. Just see this imense sea of highrises. There's no city in the world like this. SP is by far the most density city on earth.

Since SA dont have any markable skyscraper, SP should be in the pool and more than that at least in the top 5!

Note that the owner of the thread dont know a shit of Brazil. Putting Brasilia in the list

Or you could just do like Bonaerense24 said and start your own thread and put whatever you like in it.
Also, mind your language.
