What Is There To Do In Santa Clara?

Santa Clara, California is just 45 miles south of San Francisco and is located in the heart of Silicon Valley. Many tech corporations have made it big in this area. Santa Clara is also home to a Spanish mission church and San Francisco 49ers, who frequently play at Levi's Stadium. Here are some of the best things to do in the area.

Mission Santa Clara

Mission Santa Clara, also known as Mission Santa Clara de Asis, originated as a mission church in 1777, hence its name. Unfortunately, natural disasters forced the landmark to move away from its original site. The church that guests still visit was built in 1822. Its mission to convert the people in the area was ruined by the measles and smallpox outbreak.

The mission was then given to the Jesuits in 1857, who founded Santa Clara University. You can visit the church seven days a week. You can pick up a brochure to learn more about the self-guided tours that are held on a regular basis. You can also check out the artifacts and remnants that were also preserved.
