Sanctuary at the Carmel Mission

The Sanctuary at the Carmel Mission. The twenty one California Missions each have their own unique and beautiful details and the Carmel mission is sure no exception. This is the main sanctuary, just inside the front door.

Carmel Mission Bell Tower from the Fountain

A view of the Carmel Mission bell tower over the fountain in the courtyard. The sun was getting low in the sky and there was just enough of a breeze to make the water look beautiful in the sun.

Carmel Mission Bell Tower From The Courtyard

The Carmel Mission is an absolute treasure, it has so many beautiful architectural details I always find new and interesting angles every time I return. This is the main bell tower, the one you can see from the street, but this angle is from the inside courtyard. California Historical Landmark NO. 135 Mission San Carlos Borroméo de Carmelo

Mission Carmel Bell Tower

This is from the inner courtyard at the Carmel Mission. I believe the tree with the white blossoms is a Flowering Pear Tree. This is thier time of year. There are some around here that are pure white with so many blossoms you can't see their leaves.

Father Junipero Serra

Before we drove down Highway 1 yesterday we stopped at the beautiful Carmel Mission. It was a great place to wander with my camera. We have tried to make it into the mission on several previous trips to the area but our timing was always off. I'm glad we made it this time. The grounds on the inside were much bigger than I thought.

This is a statue of Father Junipero Serra, founder of nine of the twenty-one California Missions.
