Which country has the best cities?

Postby Johnny1975 » March 19th, 2016, 10:28 pm

I'll tell you. Spain.

The buildings are nice, there are plenty of squares, and even the suburbs are interesting. It's clean, and there's always something interesting to look at. Even ordinary buildings are pleasing to the eye. There are few bleak, depressing areas or concrete wildernesses. And there are always shops to be found, even in residential streets. They're very picturesque, and you can tell that there's a lot of pride in the way things are laid out. Not too organized, not too disorganized. Perfect. The only problem is, they're a bit too sleepy.

Haha! I was going to say Spain as I was clicking on your thread!

Of the ones I'm familiar with:

Madrid - Good, big European city, not as overrun with transplants/immigrants/tourists as other capitals (London, Paris). Nice mix of old and new architecture. Suburbs are cozy, cultured, and well connected via a metro rail. Beautiful Royal buildings, great food and nightlife. Atocha is my favorite train station.

Barcelona - One of the truly hip urban international experiences. Sagrada Familia is one of the modern wonders of the world.

Seville - Awesome historical city, original gateway between America and Europe. Excellent Paella!

Alicante - I love this little gem of a coastal city. Great beaches and topography.

Segovia - Old school Spanish town surrounded by exceptional scenery.


I'd love to visit many other Spanish cities, Valencia, Cadiz, Cordoba, La Coruña, et cetera... Madrid is where my friends are from and is generally convenient with it's central location. I'd consider living there if I had the opportunity.

Hello fightforlove, this is Iraqvet2003. I happen to agree with both you and Johnny1975 that Spain has some of the best cities in the world. I hope to visit that country someday soon. Especially, I would look forward to checking out the cities of Madrid, Barcelona, Alicante, and Seville. Spain also has some interesting castles. Fightforlove, can I ask you something, when you were in Spain have you been to the cities of Zaragoza or Valencia? And if so would you recommend visiting either of these two places?

I'd imagine any cities that are old (ancient, colonial, etc.) are likely to be decent, provided that their old architecture and street-layouts remain standing. China still has some old, good cities like that but most of their good stuff was destroyed long ago. Latin American or Philippines colonial cities and towns have a pleasing look and atmosphere. I'm sure Europe has a lot of cities like this too.

Iraq vet,

I have not been to Zaragoza or Valencia, I've only been to the cities I commented on above, mostly Madrid where I was twice a short-term exchange student. I've been to Alicante, which is probably like a smaller version of Valencia (just south along the coast in the Valencia province). Alicante has beautiful sandy beaches, very warm water in the summer, there is an island called Tabarca off the coast near Alicante/Elche that you can take a ferry to, absolutely beautiful Mediterranean island with reefs, fish, breakwaters, a beach and a lighthouse. Alicante area is a true laid-back, Spanish Mediterranean experience. Valencia is bigger and a little more happening, and of course Barcelona is very happening and one of the top tourist destinations in Europe.
