Royal Presidio Chapel
Located on Church Street. Built in circa 1770 by Father Junipero Serra and Don Gasper de Portola. The church is located in the old Presido site and is the last surviving portion of the Church of San Carlos de Borromeo de Monterey. In 1789 the church suffered extensive fire damage and was rebuilt and dedicated in 1795.
