The Mudejar Star window

Founded in 1770, Mission San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo, the headquarters of the father-presidents, was the second mission of the chain.  The old mission features the Mudejar Star window, an example of an architectural style once popular in Spain. Mudejares were Muslims who lived in Spain after the 1200’s.
