Those are all very impressive in sheer mass and size, but none of them have decent quality architecture. 99 % of the buildings look similarly cheap and uninspired... My favorite for natural setting and size is Rio.

it's a hard choise, but the São Paulo's Skyline is the best. Curitiba has a beautiful skyline too.

Thats kind of true but they are improving. Sao Paulo Berrini area is getting a lot of good architecture buildings and the centre of Rio has some iconic and nice buildings. But yeah, at least 70% of residential towers are ugly.

Curitiba is nice, but the skyline needs some taller towers that outstand.

Man.. stop to say that brazilians cities are Benidorm-like.

I think it's more coherent to say that Benidorm is the spanish Camboriu, Recife or Fortaleza.

I'm tired of the brazilians who thinks that everything from overseas is better than their own stuff. It's driving me crazy.
