Carmel Mission

3080 Rio Rd, Carmel, CA

Carmel Mission dates back to 1542, when it was first discovered. But it wasn’t until 1770 that it was formally named and established as a mission. Today, families can get up close with the ancient architecture and artifacts of this now-Roman Catholic mission. Interpretive tours are available.

There’s also a budget-friendly hotel, the Carmel Mission Inn, near this attraction.


The Carmel Mission is open 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
