First, i don't speak english.
"Quality of berserk"
Adventure/action mangas, that i consider similars in quality (none comes close) are:
-Abara/Digimortal } All of Tsuomi Nihei
-Dorohedoro (I only read the first chapter, but it's my next manga read)
-The feudal arc of Tenjou Tenge (only the feudal arc, the other arcs are very bads)
-Claymore (only in the action category, not in the adventure category)
¿There is a manga recomendation sub-forum or a especific thread for manga recomendations?

I think I speak for most fans of Berserk when I say that it is pretty much in a class all it's own! About it's only major fault would be... the frequency of it's releases. Or rather, a lack of them.
If you want a really good seinen though, I would highly recommend: Vagabond, Vinland Saga, and Kingdom as a really good short list.
There is also a wide variety of seinen manga recommendations in the Seinen Awards section.
If you prefer Spanish, many of the readers will have Spanish versions of these popular manga.

Yeah Vagabond and Vinland Saga come close to Berserk in terms of quality. I hear that Kingdom is pretty good too.
You might want to check Devilman if you want a story similar to Berserk.Miura says it was one of his inspiration for Berserk after all. I personally read it and watch the OVAs and it's pretty good.It's an old title but it still withstands the comparison to other seinen titles.
"With the Quality of Berserk".
That's hardly possible considering it's an all-time-great written by a Perfectionist.
What I recommend:
Song of the Long March (Though this is a Manhua) and Teppu.
Along with what the others said.
thanks for the recommendations
Feng Sheng Ji is good but it is closer to Shonen that Seinin ...
Gantz is pretty good too. However it doesn't even come close to holding a candle to Berserk...
Well, I think Blame! is better than Berserk but that's a matter of opinion.
ofc, there are other great ones like Vagabond, Vinland saga and Shigurui.
Well it's not of the same quality of Berserk, but right now I enjoy reading Magi a lot than Berserk. It's a shonen loosely based on 1000 and one nights, so if you enjoy this kind if setting then you should check it out.

I know this thread is kinda old but i got nothing else to do plus other ppl might read it (like I did)
first of all: i concur that shigurui is a great manga with great art (the only manga except berserk ive read more than once)
not sure they count as seinen but... pluto, shingeki no kyojin, zetman, wolfguy and blade of the immortal are great mangas that hasnt been mentioned that could fit what you're looking for (and all have good art)
another great manga (manhua but whatever), that hasnt been mentioned above, if art is paramount: the ravages of time
edit: i forgot: battle angel alita

I think imo The Breaker (The "old waves", new waves lacking that spark) is the most close to Berserk in terms of quality overall, specially the story.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
I don't read many Manga but here are some other great
works of literature related to Berserk you might check out.
Goethe - Faust I & II
(getting bewitched by the devil, Guts by Griffith & Griffith by the God Hand)
Wilde - The Picture of Dorian Gray
(Griffith getting corrupted through his dream)
Zelazny - This Immortal serialized as ...And Call Me Conrad
(The Berserk wiki lists it as inspiration for Conrad)
Milton - Paradise Lost
(The God Hand? who might wants to reclaim Paradise/Heaven - World Change)
