11 of the Most Colorful Cities in the World

11 of the Most Colorful Cities in the World | (Culture)s (Urbaine)s | Scoop.it

What are the cultural aesthetics of architecture within any particular cultural group?  What do these landscapes say about the people and society that created them?  Do you think there would be economic benefits for Guanajuato's (Mexico) urban layout?  Why is Willemstad more iconically Dutch than most places in the Netherlands?

This article tells us the eleven most colorful cities in the world. Although they give us eleven options, everyone knows that the first one is going to be the best one. Number one, the picture that is shown above, is located in Guanajuato City, Mexico. As you can tell from the photo, all of the buildings are different colors. The city was founded in 1554 next to one of the richest mining areas of Mexico. In the 16th century, there was a mining boom, thus led them to the construction of this colorful, beautiful city. Alleyways are spread out in every direction surround by a breathtaking mountain view. This was the only spot that Mexico took on the top eleven scale. The Netherlands took the number two spot along with the number eight spot. First with Willemstad and second with Utrecht. India was another country that took two spots on our countdown. The last two spots were claimed by Jaipur and Jodhpur. Places that were on here that I was surprised about included places like Italy and Sweden. The pictures do not do it justice. The places looked magnificent and I only hope and hope to see them up close and personal one day.
