This was a must this second time in Carmel. My teens and I walked from 4th and San Carlos St. Partial sidewalks 3/4 of the way, but pretty safe. Enjoyed the 15/20 minute walk considering the eating out we've been doing. Very low admission cost. The grounds are absolutely stunning. It's like I fell back into time. The Catholic missionary history lesson was educational. Quiet, Respectful, Spiritual environment. Each of us lit a candle and said a prayer. If you don't plan to return to Carmel, make sure you spend some time here esp. if God is an important part of your life.
