Travel + Leisure just released its World’s Best Awards for 2017.

The awards are based on a survey that includes responses from thousands of experienced travelers.

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, was voted the best city in the world for the first time — beating out major travel destinations like Florence and Capetown.

With San Miguel de Allende’s charming streets, stunning architecture, and vibrant color, it’s no wonder travelers ranked the city so high.
