Carmel-by-the-Sea



































The San Carlos Borromeo Mission: In February I visited San Diego, and one of the oldest things there is the Mission San Diego de Alcala, which was founded in 1769 by Junipero Serra, a Spanish Franciscan friar who founded an entire chain of missions in what is now California. In 1770 he founded The San Carlos Borromeo Mission much further north in Carmel, where he is buried.

The second photo shows the memorial sarcophagus, but he's actually buried under the main sanctuary (chapel) floor.
