Mission Santa Clara Mission – Santa Clara University, a set on Flickr.
On Saturday I visited my 12 California Mission which is actually the closest to where I live. The Santa Clara Mission is a very nice place. The Santa Clara University campus is one of the most beautiful campuses that I’ve seen.
There isn’t much left of the original mission at this location. A single adobe wall exists along side the church. The church itself burned to the ground in 1926. The rebuilt church is beautiful inside with a marvelous ceiling and altar area.
If you want to see artifacts, visit the art museum where various mission and university items are located.
Santa Clara is California’s oldest-operating institution of higher education, with more than 150 years of history.
