What County is Monterey?
In no other place in California can you feel as clearly as in Monterey (to Deutsch Königsberg), that California has only been American for 150 years. Before that, there were more than 250 years of Spanish history and about 50 years of Mexican history. At that time, Monterey was the capital of Upper California, seat of the local Spanish and Mexican governments.
The city was able to preserve much of this time, not only official but also private buildings, which can be experienced on a tour (yes, here you have to run). Then, at the latest, it is known that the United States has overrun an area of highly developed government more or less in peace. The coastal town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, home to many celebrities, is one of the most prosperous places in the United States.
