I would say "the most passionate," not "the most charming." I think the most charming is Quebec City or even Montréal. Buenos Aires is more along the lines of grandeur (big, big city and 19th c. European architectural elegance) and passion (tango and Italian-Spanish heritage).

^^ Quebec City is extremely charming, but is a very small city. Montreal, with
all due respect, does not hold a candle to Buenos Aires. These pictures are
astounding, and the architecture is mind blowing. Congrats to your fine pictures!
And, what a good looking lot of people are in that city!

There is a reason why they call it the Paris of the south. But yeah, that would make for a good city vs city, more charm B.A. versus Quebec City.

Beautiful pics. If you would have said they were of Paris, I would have believed it.
I'm surprised a mod did not lock the thread considering the title of the first pic, though. I hope that is not a motto or jingle for BA. Maybe "City of Romance" or something like that would be better!

It is by far the most European City in LA - really great pics, thanks!

Intersting: We invented it, they moved to Chicago and from there around the world to reach Sao Paulo last year and now these COWS are standing here :lol:

Yup, that's precisely why I said BA is more along the lines of "grand," due to its grandeur, elegance and big city character. "Charming" tends to imply a more humble seduction which I attribute to smaller cities (or old quarters, like Old Montréal) with either colonial or any European architecture prior to the 19th century. In the mid 19th century, many cities saw the erection of grand, neo-classic façades, like BA. Thus BA's style to me goes beyond charm and enters the realm of opulance and grandeur, as well as passion.
