it does indeed. to be fair though ... it all looks much better from the street level. in some streets of benidorm you get a very urban feeling.

Benidorm looks interesting, but come on ... how are you supposed to have a relaxing beach holiday in that concrete jungle???

Reminds me of this:

^Lol, I was in Lloret, it's also a concret jungle but just not that high. You can easily enjoy yourself there. I don't know why nobody likes it, you must also not like Sao Paulo.

Anyway, a new Rotterdam pic

Voted Frankfurt cos we r talking only about BEST SKYLINE.
Runner up Paris, London. Other cities got only scattered & isolated skyscrapers here & there IMHO. (I know all of them anyway)
Among the best ones in a few years there will be Milan fo' sure!
Cheers

But this thread is about skylines? Or about beautiful buildings? If you want to talk about pretty buildings, create another thread that speaks of architectural wonders of the world. For the moment, and as far as I know, here we talk about something else.

well i'm not his backup nor a supporter of his slang nor a fan of these predominant non-self-deprecating patriotists here, but honestly, it's a hard challenge to use terms like "nice" or "good" for benidorms appearance.

i mean do you really like what you see? esthetically and as a whole? not really or?

I don't think so. It's dense, but majority of these buildings look like crappy commieblocks. Highrises aren't impressive as well.

Benidorm SKYLINE:












To be or not to be, that's the question. For me, is an impressive skyline...

Which (apart from beautiful Santiago) should not be a compliment to a European city!
