San Carlos Cathedral
The San Carlos Cathedral, also known as Royal Presidio Chapel, has been into existence since 1770s. The cathedral was the first building made in Monterey, also it is the only one that has for so long served as a place of worship. The beautiful architectural style of this cathedral is what one should not miss, it has a Spanish and Moorish influence, that makes it look all the more beautiful.
I was recently in a tour called Monterey-Carmel Spanish History Tour and San Carlos Cathedral was 1 of at least 7 sites our tour guide brought us to. I learned that it is actually the first stone building in CA and also the first architect designed building in CA and the oldest still functioning church in CA. Pretty amazing. It really is worth visiting. There are also docents in the Cathedral who can answer all your possible questions.
