I had the hoped that many foristas lovers of their cities that they defended the merits of many of their cities but until now they have not appeared opponents.-

In part It was logical because that in a only country many wonderful cities as in Italy and Spain is practically impossible that they exist, and there are millions of tourists that the confirm .-
I could provide you with tons of examples of undeserving sites in Europe, including in Spain and Italy. There is no way the Spain and Italy are deserving of more sites than China and India, both of which are far larger countries that have been heavily populated for thousands of years. Again, UNESCO is biased and flawed.

Iaskwhy.-

As it is logical I do not Know all the cities of the World that Unesco has highlighted.
But the italian and spanish cities highlighted by UNESCO seem to me to be very fair .

I have seen in another continent an absurdly chosen city . A City that I will not mention for not to hurt feelings. I deduced that the Unesco wants satisfy to all Continents minimally-.

Surely , that there are very beautiful cities in the India and China ,but it is rare that if they are in the level
of for example of Venice ,Florence,Granada or Seville,etc etc are not so well Known in this time of good communications.-

if you know these cities I would like to know things about them because the Forum I think it is ideal for learning things.-

Let me provide some examples. I am most familiar with the US so I will use it as a point of comparison.

Not World Heritage Sites:

Golden Gate Bridge
Sequoia National Park (largest trees/plants/non-clonal organism on earth)
Pando Tree (largest organism on earth)
Times Square
Empire State Building
Great Lakes (largest freshwater lakes in the world)
Arches National Park (largest collection of stone arches on earth)
Bryce Canyon National Park (largest collection of hoodoos on earth)
Denali National Park
Death Valley (hottest place on earth)
Any site in Los Angeles

Some World Heritage Sites in Italy and Spain that aren't deserving:

Dolomites
Aeolian Islands
Medici villas
Val d'Orcia
Ferrara
Garajonay National Park
Pyrénées – Mont Perdu
Las Médulas
Palmeral of Elche
Vizcaya Bridge
Teide National Park

46% of UNESCO World Heritage Sites are in Europe. If you don't see that as biased I can't help you.

Iaskwhy.-

It is very simple here we are talking of cities, not of bridges,mountains beautiful,etc .-

I hoped that you would put me countries in other Continents with many cities as wonderful as those mentioned in Spain and Italy and not other things that UNESCO has declared they Exceptional , and that I give to you the reason, are very debatable.

One thing I can affirm .You have, very good taste he has chosen a magnificent city of Europe to live Cannes.-

On other hand ,thank you very much for those data and maps that are very interesting.-

I don't live in Cannes. I'm not sure what you are talking about. My point was that UNESCO is flawed, that's what I was trying to show. It doesn't matter if I use cities for the examples or not.

As is logical I do not Know all the cities of the World.

In all the countries that I know there is some or several beautiful city, but many beautiful cities in the same countries and some so unique in the World . I do not think that there are more than in Spain and Italy.

For example there are countries like Germany with some very beautiful cities .I like them a lot german cities as Munich Dresden,Nuremberg,and Heidelberg.

But even in that Great Country with 80 million inhabitans against 47 million of inhabitans that has Spain o 65 Italy. neither remotely has as many magnificent cities or are comparatively as wonderful as the cities italians and Spanish,-

Berlin in compared to Rome ,Madrid ,Barcelona,perhaps are more equivalent in beauty , .you can say which city you like more.-

Munich a city that I love but can not compare with Seville or Florence cities of legend.-

Dresden that wonderful baroque German city that is reborn now after the terrible war world nevertheless can not be compared with Venice or Granada 2 cities unique in the World.-

Nuremberg city full of medioval charm and of the terrible nazi history can not be compared with cities as Turin or Valencia.-

And the charming University city of Heidelber where i had an anecdote with a German exchange student Erasmus at the university of Salamanca who served as interpreter She confesses to me that the beauty of Salamanca could no be compared with Heidelber.

And you could pick up here more 20 cities of Italy and also in Spain that have no comparison with other cities Germans .-

Another day we can compare for example the italian and spanish cities with other of France or of the UK -

And if some forista, they want even can propose , comparison with some countries that are almost Continents, as USA China or Rusia,etc
