Mission San Carlos Borromeo at Carmel Scenes

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

There is a jewel along the Monterey-Carmel coastline in California, that shouldn't be missed.  It is the Mission San Carlos Borromeo at Carmel.  Father Junipero Serra founded the mission in June of 1770.  Originally the mission was established on the site of the present presidio Chapel in Monterey.  However a year later Father Serra with a group of Indians moved the mission to its present location five miles away in the Carmel Valley - on the other side of the peninsula from Monterey.

Of the 21 missions, of the California Mission chain, the Carmel mission was Father Serra's favorite.  He is buried in the alter floor there.  Mission San Carlos Borromeo was also the second mission in the chain to be founded.

Earlier this week, I was able to capture  scenes that make this mission one of my favorites as well.  The structures are not as large as some of the other missions - especially the beautiful Santa Barbara mission; but the details and quaint intimacy create special warmth that cannot be denied.

The California missions were established by the Spanish, during the period of this state's history that predated the more raucous antics of the California Gold Rush which began in 1849.

Myrl,

Wow, what a great group of pictures.  I did not realize the number of missions that exist around California.  I love the intimacy and warmth of the kitchen area and the living area you shared with us.  Other than seeing the mission from the outside in Santa Barbara, I have not been inside of it.  You inspired me to do that.  A

Good morning Myrl Jeffcoat ,

I had no idea there are so many missions around California, 21 that is quite a number. Wonderful photos you snapped....you captured the feel and I can see why you take time to enjoy visiting and absorbing the ambiance!

Happy Sunday, Myrl Jeffcoat - you have wonderful pictures here, and your generous policy of sharing them is quite remarkable. The Carmel Mission is one of my favorites, too. If you ever have the opportunity to hear the chorus, Chanticleer, perform their Christmas concert here -- go!

I am a history buff and love to tour places like this. We went to San Antonio last year and one of the highlights of the trip for me was touring some of the old missions there.

Hi Myrl: Sometimes I read about road trips of people who travel the state for the sole purpose of viewing the California Missions. That would be fun to do, don't you think? And although I've made several side trips to Carmel from Sacramento, I've never been to that particular mission. Absolutely GORGEOUS photos, too, and your grandson is a sharp dresser.

I would love to visit that one and the other missions in CA. We have visited San Juan Capistrano. Very interesting.

Hi Myrl

These photos are stunning!. I love visiting the missions but have only seen a few of them. What a treasure that they have been preserved!
