Be prepared to be surprised by a story to tell, from tree-lined avenues to boulevards. These are the most beautiful streets in the world you need to see.
Setenil de las Bodegas, Spain
Located in the south of Spain, directly between Seville and Malaga, Setenil de las Bodegas is a small town of about 3,000 inhabitants. The whitewashed houses are beautiful, but that’s not what makes this town so unique. It is that the structures are built directly into the rocky cliffs that surround the area. The result is beautiful natural rock formations that overlook the streets, providing shade and breathtaking views.
Brooklyn, New York
For those walking down the cobblestone streets of Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood, the sudden view of the Manhattan Bridge could be a splendid surprise. At the intersection of Washington and Water Street, residents and tourists alike can admire the majestic beauty of the longest bridge linking Manhattan and Brooklyn (the span bearing the name of the former is 866 feet longer than the span bearing the name of the latter). Of course, the view is even more spectacular because the buildings are symmetrical on either side of Washington Street, creating one of the best opportunities for architectural photography in the neighborhood.
Recife is the easternmost large city in Brazil, and the beautiful Rua do Bom Jesus occupies one of the easternmost parts of the city. The colorful street, lined with tall palm trees, is steeped in history. This 15th century street contained the first synagogue built in America, the Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue. The building is still there for visitors to see.
The city of Mykonos, Greece
In addition to being one of the most romantic places for honeymoon couples, Mykonos is also a street in the city with whitewashed houses, blue balustrades and green foliage around them.
