  • We made a quick stop here on our way out of San Jose. It was a Sunday so the grounds were quiet. Mass was going on,so we quietly slipped in the back and enjoyed the singing of the congregation and the...  more »

  • Home of the oldest California college and first mission to honor a woman. Beautiful campus grounds with lots of sports fields and aquatics facility. Holy week services going on even though it was spring break. Large sculptures adorn the grounds and mission interior was contemplative. Easily walked and wheelchair accessible.
  • This is a lovely campus for a leisurely walk. The grounds are beautiful and impeccibly cared for. Contemporary sculptures dot the campus. A blooming Wisteria Arbor near the Mission Church was stunning! There are many roses as well. Even the buildings are attractive, and there are many grassy areas to soften areas between the buildings. Parking is limited. Dogs are allowed on leash.
  • Beautiful campus and the church has a well attended noon Mass. Lovely church and it's quiet enough for a visitor who wishes to pray undisturbed. The church provides a nice little brochure for a self guided tour of the interior and immediate exterior surroundings. It's now part of the Santa Clara University grounds, and parking is by permit only and spaces are limited. Worth the visit. The campus bookstore could have better postcards with clearer photo quality. I would have liked close up pictures of the St. Clare statues over the altar and front entry.
  • fc gxgfc gfcgf IDK jhdg EVY AND ANNA ARE THE BEST
  • Inside the university you see this mission that contains a church, a cemetery and a museum with some artifacts like the previous bell gifted by Charles the third from Spain. There are better missions around California but if you have opportunity it's a good idea to visit.
