Self-Guided Tours

Due to the Coronavirus, the information on the page below does not reflect up to date information give the current circumstances.

Please see our Advisory Page for the most current information and conditions at Carmel Mission.


Many people visit the Mission on a self-guided basis using the small brochure provided as a guide to the history and the grounds. The brochure is available in several languages for the convenience of our many visitors from overseas. We presently have translations in Spanish, Polish, and Portuguese. Throughout the week we try to have a trained docent on site to augment your visit and frequently the onsite docent can provide specific information or lead an informal tour for interested visitors.
