The nature of beauty is undoubtedly subjective, often defined by individual perspectives and preferences. However, when a substantial consensus arises on a public platform like Twitter, it signals a collective appreciation for certain aesthetics, reflecting the distinct charm and appeal that a place holds.

The Twitter account ‘Relatando historia,’ known for sharing historical insights and curiosities, kickstarted the competition using a tournament-style framework.

This format organised various Spanish cities into a series of elimination rounds, culminating in a showdown between two distinguished Andalucian cities: Granada and Sevilla.

In a closely contested final, Granada clinched the title with a notable 52.7% of the votes.

This victory over Sevilla, which garnered 47.3% of the votes, solidified Granada’s reputation as a city renowned for its picturesque landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and architectural splendor.

This recognition is particularly meaningful as it comes from a diverse pool of Twitter users, each offering their unique perspective on what constitutes beauty.

Beyond the top two contenders, Cadiz secured a commendable third place in the rankings, further affirming the diverse range of aesthetically pleasing cities across Spain.

The final Twitter-based rankings are as follows:

1 – Granada
