comparing な adjectives

Asked 9 months ago

In the lesson "Which witch is which" there is the following comparisson:

"Small towns are safer than big towns"  --> 小さいまち、大きいまちよりあんぜんです。

If I remember well then 大きい is a な adjective, so I expected:  大きなまち.

So my question is, why is the な not needed in this case? Is it because it is about big cities in general instead of a particular big city?

or is it something that I have already learned in an earlier lesson but forgotten all about?

Don't know the reason, but it means the exact same thing. So whether it is 大きい or 大きな there's no real difference... from what I learned so far at least. I think it's just a preference.

Thank you very much ! It is good to know that using な is also correct.
