Tech Notes
This is the San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo
Missions of California Educational Project.
Parental Supervision is Recommended.

Founded second in the mission chain on June 3, 1770, San Carlos Borromeo
is considered by many to be the most beautiful of all the California missions.
It is here that Father Junipero Serra made his headquarters, and where he was
laid to rest along with Father Crespi and Father Lasuen.
In 1797 a large stone church was built around the original adobe one,
using sandstone from the Santa Lucia Mountains. Its individuality is
illustrated by a Moorish dome, geometric star-designed window and ornate false
Following secularization, the great stone church was abandoned and stood
roofless until 1884. A 1931 restoration resulted in one of the most authentic
of all the missions. Two years later Carmel Mission became an independent
parish and remains an active church.
