“Santa Clara University Campus and mission”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

This is a beautiful campus and a great walk I've always enjoyed. The mission church is a special trip back in history in the middle of the campus.

“My Favorite Mission”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

My favorite Mission is the Santa Clara. Even though some are clearly more bonita and in quieter locations I get to go this one since its so close. Plus the Santa Clara University is a neat little campus to walk around and free parking.

“Mission Santa Clara”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Beautifully restored church is used as a parish and is located on the campus of the University of Santa Clara. It is maintained in wonderful condition and the artwork inside the church is remarkable for beauty and history. Surrounding gardens are also lovely.

“Plan on going to the Museum next door too”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

I can't add much to the other reviews. The chapel was beautiful and the Musuem de Saisset next door was free and had very interesting history displays in their basement. The top two levels of the Musuem have rotating art exhibits. This Mission is the only CA Mission to be maintained/restored by a private University (a Jesuit University) which gives it a slightly different character than the others. (Most are maintained by parishes, two by the State of Ca). When you drive on campus, the parking attendant/security officer, will give you a visitor's parking pass for free, which will allow you 2 or 3 hours of free parking in the visitor spots (which are very near the mission and the museum).

“Gorgeous Wedding!”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

I was recently married in this strikingly beautiful church. The artwork and detail inside will take some time to truly look at and appreciate. The reception in the adjacent rose garden is a great example of incorporating landscape design into the architecture plan.
