Carmel Mission reviews
A working mission that we visited on a Sunday, as morning service was drawing to a close. Reasonably pricey to enter, but the museum was well laid out, with some interesting history and exhibits... more »
My wife and I were intrigued by this lovingly restored mission. It's beautiful. Junipero Serra is our new favorite person! more »
What a lovely place! You feel as though you have stepped back in time when entering this place. The architecture is just stunning! The gardens are also lovely and everyone here is very kind. I and my husband came close to closing however they let us in and told us what areas are closing first and others that would remain open for another two hours. It was very kind of them, also take into consideration that this is still a working church.
Nice place to visit for a bit of California history, especially if you are into mission history, since Serra and Lausen are both buried here. There is a fee to go into the actual mission grounds, but I found it was worth it. I probably spent an hour and a half here viewing exhibits and taking in the beauty. There is a brief movie that goes into some detail on the restoration of the mission. The grounds and buildings are stunning and give a good glimpse into what it once looked like. There is plenty to look at and read about as you meander through the grounds. I’m glad I went - and in a few years time, I’d probably go again to refresh my memory on this unique part of California history.
