Junipero Serra and Mission Carmel

Graveyard beside the Chapel

San Carlos Borroméo de Carmelo Mission

Mission Carmel is particularly significant in the history of California because Padre Serra, the man credited with the founding of the California Missions, ended his days at Mission Carmel. He is buried next to the main altar.

A bit of the history of the Carmel Mission can be found here.
