They are synonyms.

Here is a good explanation.

Definitions from my favorite dictionary:

I am near the kitchen; I am near to the kitchen; I am close to the kitchen. All the same

I am near to my mother (I am standing next to her) I am close to my mother (we love each other and talk every day)

The end is near (set phrase), never the end is close

Don't stand so close to me (common), Don't stand so near to me (much less common)

Hold me close (hold me tightly), never hold me near
