We always find it interesting to see the historic mission in Carmel. Junipero Serra was instrumental in bringing religion to the area. This is a nice experience.

A historic monument, with interesting architecture. A great way to spend an hour or so exploring the site. It is easily accessible by car (there is limited parking at the front) or by bus and a short walk. It was very peaceful when we visited and the staff were friendly.

Always enjoyable to visit these old missions. Plenty to see here, a larger gift shop and museum on site. Attending mass Saturday evening was a pleasant experience.

One of the first missions in California, the locals have kept in almost original shape. The church is magnificent and the sounds emanating when the choir is singing is awesome. The ground, museum and graveyard is worth the time to explore.
