They might be located far away from the old continent, but these places reminiscent of Europe. We present the most typical examples of cities with European air.

Victoria, British Columbia

The city of Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia and has been considered the most English city in South America. This is particularly evident if someone walks along the waterfront of the road. The provincial capital is filled with wonderful gardens, English pubs and more bike trails than any other city in Canada.

Macau, China

The Macau has retained its Portuguese roots, so much so that you will hear people speak Portuguese as wandering in the Old Village Taipa. It is one of the few places in Asia where you can dine on food cooked by Portuguese families, drink Portuguese wine and browse fortresses and churches built during the Portuguese colonization.

Buenos Aires, Argentina

The neoclassical buildings, museums and cafes at the end of the street in Buenos Aires have provided the Argentine capital a decidedly European feel. Despite the similarities with Europe, the city has a separate action by itself and this seems either overlooking the balcony where Evita addressed her fans, either watching tango in a dark bar.

Cuenca, Ecuador

While in Quito, the capital of Ecuador, is often considered too European, the southernmost city of Cuenca is even more, thanks to the cobblestone streets, colonial churches, whitewashed buildings with red tile roofs and the busiest squares. The city earned a place in the list of UNESCO to the World Heritage in 1999 and is popular with tourists for its cafes galleries hosted in historic buildings.
