Loved the beautiful integration of paintings, sculpture and architecture. Nearby is the Museum de Saisset which has some interesting artifacts and rotating art exhibits.

A beautiful example of the California Missions. Located on the Campus of Santa Clara University and near San Jose, CA. This mission is not the largest example of the California Missions, but it is very beautiful inside.

Took my daughter her to work on a mission project. Lot of history here, and it was fun to learn more about the missions. The mission is really easy to get to and actually sits on the property of UC Santa Clara.

The church is beautiful and peaceful. Walk around the grounds and enjoy the gorgeous roses and landscaping. Check out the cork tree next to the church. The architecture is interesting and historic. You can also visit the free art museum across from the church.
