There’s no better way to appreciate San Miguel de Allende, a colonial city in Mexico, than in a full, immersive, 360 degrees. This year, Travel + Leisure readers recognized San Miguel de Allende in the annual World’s Best Awards as the No. 1 city on the planet.

From this angle, you can appreciate the impressive architecture, the sun-soaked mountains in the distance, and the deep-rooted artistry.

A trip to San Miguel de Allende should include a relaxing afternoon at Escondido Place (a spa retreat with bubbling hot springs), and a day trip to the 18th-century church complex, Santuario de Atotonilco, which lies just north of the city.

In the heart of the city, travelers will find the pink Neo-Gothic church, Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel, which overlooks the main plaza.

There are colorful shops, manicured parks, and a number of markets that sell everything from handicrafts to local street food.

For many years, San Miguel has been a cultural center and a source of inspiration for chefs, artists, and travelers from around the globe.
