Carmel Mission Basilica3080 Votes Currently Open
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a U.S. National Historic Landmark, this was California’s second mission, and it played a significant role in California’s late 18th century power struggles. The church is today one the most authentically restored churches, with an original bell tower that survives to this day. As such, it’s more than a place of worship; the church hosts concerts, art exhibits, lectures and numerous other community events. There are also four museum galleries that cover the restoration, the history of the Munras Family, and cells that were the living quarters of the first priest here (Father Junipero Serra). There’s also a chapel containing Serra’s vestments. You may hold your wedding at the church too!
