This was a great stop. Visited the mission in the morning during the week and no one was around except the care takers. This mission sits on the grounds of the the Santa Clara University and was beautifully landscaped and very tranquil. It is very well maintained and preserved. A gem of Calif Missions.

This mission church sits in the heart of the Santa Clara University campus. There are informational brochures to assist visitors. While the church is a university chapel, it has a number of concerts throughout the year with marvelous acoustics. It also has wonderful Catholic liturgies. The Sunday 10 am Mass is usually standing room only. if the de Saisset Museum... More

The original mission has been rebuilt a few times as adobe does not stand up forever as a building material. The inside of the church is tasteful but the alter has an opulent feel. Make sure you look up at the ceiling. There are some pieces of the original walls on the campus grounds. Although on campus grounds, mass is... More

as one of the 21 missions in California I am biased towards this mission because I went to school there (Santa Clara Univ.) and used to pass by the mission church every day on my way to class. I return every year for the annual alumni reunion activities. the church is quiet, solemn and quite old. It is a spiritual... More

I really like this Mission Santa Clara for it's Architecture and it's location in Santa Clara. What is really nice is that they have a 9:00pm Mass on Sundays in case you've been traveling and didn't get a chance to make Mass!

Located in the middle of Santa Clara University, this historic church is beautiful inside and out. A self-guided tour pamphlet is available in the narthex as you enter. Sunday Mass is friendly, run by the Jesuits and attracts a wide variety of ages and backgrounds

The mission sits in the middle of the mall of Santa Clara University. The chapel is well maintained, with beautiful fresco paintings and tile flooring. The adjacent courtyard is breathtaking with wisteria vines and lilies in the garden. A must see in Santa Clara!
