Brazil´s Top skyline

Brazil is one of the countries with the most number of skylines in the World, maybe it comes second only after the United States. From buzzling Sao Paulo to impressive Rio de Janeiro and futuristic Brasilia the streets of the brazilian cities have two things in common, hot girls and dozens of highrises. Although some countries in South America are ahead Brazil in high, no one can match Brazils massive cities, known as the concrete jungles of South America.

Since the "Best South American skyline" thread its only about capital cities, leaving the most important Brazilian cities out of the poll, and this kind of threads are common in the forum this days, I decided to create this thread to appriciate the skylines of the South American Giant.

Sao Paulo is quite impressive but their are other skylines that come out more harmonously like Fortaleza or Recife. Rio de Janeiro´s downtown is beautiful and its southern districts have an excellent skyline that matches almost perfectly with the natural background.

In some pictures Belo Horizonte looks like a mini-Sao Paulo.

I think Curitiba is quite nice but Sao Paulo definitely is the best.
Rio has the most stunning landscape.

Brazilian cities are unique, with some familiar aspects between them.

The photo "showing" Belo Horizonte is not from there. It isn't even by the shore.

It's another Brazilian city.

My mistake, I knew there was something weird with that picture but I thought maybe a huge river pass near Belo Horizonte.

Belem is great too then.

I like Salvador too, the downtown region is properly zoned. Most of the rest of the other cities are jammed with random apartment towers with maybe a small cluster of office towers randomly throughout the city.
