Carmel Mission also known as (San Carlos Borroméo de Carmelo Mission) is one of the Monterey Peninsula’s most treasured landmarks and is one of the oldest Spanish Missions in California. It was founded in 1771 by Father Junipero Serra who is buried on the site, and is still an active Roman Catholic Church to this day.

Carmel Mission is a definite “must see” if visiting Carmel, take a walk around the lovely church grounds and step back into time as you view the stunning Spanish-Moorish-Mediterranean inspired architecture as well as the colorful gardens, citrus and olive trees, roses, and brilliant bougainvillea flowers.
