Mission Santa Clara de Asis

In late March I spent a weekend with family in the San Jose area and had some free time. Which meant-time to see missions! I was very close to Mission Santa Clara and Mission San Jose wasn’t far. When I realized Mission San Juan Bautista was just about an hour’s drive, I knew my day would be spent seeing the missions!

I started by heading over to Mission Santa Clara de Asis. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous. It was a beautiful spring day, which helped, but the landscape was also just stunning.

I headed into the church, which like all the others so far, was beautiful inside.

Then I wandered out to the main entrance. Mission Santa Clara is on the campus of Santa Clara University (or should I say, Santa Clara University is on the grounds of Mission Santa Clara!

I wandered back to the garden area before I left. It was incredible, I couldn’t resist. I could have stayed there all day! But, there were more missions to see. Next up, Mission San Juan Bautista!!

look at that gorgeous greenery behind me!
