El Carmelo Cemetery is located at the north east corner of Lighthouse and Asilomar Avenues, directly across from the Pt. Pinos Lighthouse. The cemetery grounds are open from dawn until dusk.
El Carmelo Cemetery has been part of Pacific Grove's history since the 1800s. For nearly two centuries the City has maintained and cherished this final resting place. The oldest section of the cemetery has wooden markers and upright monuments located amidst stately pines and cypresses. The more recent sections are park-like settings with engraved markers placed flush with the grass. The beautiful Pacific Grove Golf Links borders the cemetery on two sides.
