This mission is in a beautifully landscaped setting and the church is very pretty. There are brochures detailing the architecture and religious statues. If you enjoy visiting missions I would recommend it.

Sitting on the beautiful campus of Santa Clara University is one of the famous California Missions. It is a stunning, well kept, building, inside and out. I live in Santa Clara and walk the campus and visit the mission many times during the year. It's a peaceful place to walk your dog or stroll around the campus buildings and extensive... More

If you are in the area, the Mission Santa Clara de Asis is a great stop. The grounds of the college are very well manicured and the Adobe Lodge has an original wall from the early days. Historians will appreciate this site.

Pretty much all of the 4th graders in California do a social studies project about the California missions. My son is no exception. So, while were were on vacation, we also stopped in as many missions as we could. Since we were in the Bay Area, we decided to stop at the mission in Santa Clara. This mission is very... More

The campus of University of Santa Clara was built around it, a nice campus stroll behind the mission in springtime. It's very popular for weddings and about as close as California can get to old Europe church ambiance--first CA mission named for a woman (Saint Clare of Assisi) and first college in CA. Enter from Franklin Street for limited off-street... More

The mission is located on the campus of Santa Clara University. We were able to park for free on the street and walk 5 minutes to the museum and mission. You can walk around the mission growns and see the "old" wall built in 1777. The mission is the first one named after a woman; Saint Clare of Assie. If... More

I have been photographing the Spanish Missions for the last couple of years. This mission is surrounded by the university at Santa Clara, CA. One of the most beautiful. Well kept and the rose gardens are just beautiful. The campus is worth a look around. Many of the original buildings now house students. Great photography!
