Carmel Mission Basilica


I was able to re-visit, Carmel Mission Basilica or Mission Carmel. Mission Carmel was built in 1797 and is considered one of the most authentically restored Catholic missions:

And what was cool, was I finally was able to get inside the church (for about 7 minutes as they were between weddings):

Carmel Mission Basilica is one of the most beautiful missions in California:


  1. Amazing looking church to visit. Missions are not something we get here

  2. What a nice post and place looks amazing

    Have a missiontastic week 👍

  3. Nice. I don't think I've been to that particular mission although I've been to Carmel several times. Hope you are having a great week!

  4. Looks like a beautiful place to visit.

  5. I recently visited Carmel Mission Basilica with my aging parents who are wheelchair bound. After viewing your beautiful photographs, I realized that I was so focused on them, I missed so much of the beauty there! Thank you for sharing!

  6. Great photos! That looks like such a serence and beautiful place to visit.

  7. It is beautiful! Is it still in use for worship?
