Carmelite Monastery which is home to the order of nuns referred to as sisters by the sea, is one of the first Carmelite monasteries on the western coast of the United States. This beautiful building was built in 1931 just off Highway one across from Point Lobos and south of Carmel-by-the-Sea. The gardens that surround the monastery are meticulously maintained by the Carmelite nuns and are full of colorful flowers, fragrant lemon trees, and benches for anyone who wants to sit, relax, and meditate. We invite you to walk the gardens and come view the towering ceilings and soft filtering sunlight of the church.
