“San Jose Mission”

Old Mission San Jose
Ranked #7 of 30 things to do in Fremont
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Beautifully restored mission, lots of historical information. We especially wanted to visit this mission as my father was named for St. Joselph. I'd recommend this to others. Since the "sort of visit" options closest to ours is Friends (we were three adult women, mother and two daughters), that's what I'm picking.

First of all, it's not in San Jose, but in Fremont. It is a wonderfully restored and lovingly maintained mission church with a very nice museum. There the original 1830 hammered copper baptismal font in the church, along with many other interesting art works.

Didn't go in the mission, but did tour the neighborhood and it's lovely! Gorgeous landscaping, carefully tended boulevards.

This place embodies the history of Alameda County from waaay before California became a state! A gem in the California Mission system.

Rebuilt to the specifications of this 1700's California Mission on the original grounds. A nice visit to the mission church and cemetery along with a view of the small but adequate museum.
