From the Alamo, this is the first mission along the trail. Well preserved and beautiful grounds. There is even a beautiful small grotto on the side depicting the Virgin Mary. Worth a visit.

Educational and fun way to blow an hour or two wandering and learning about the Missions/history in early TX.

Just think of the time this was built and all that these walls have seen and heard. Nothing we build today will last 100 years let alone three hundred years.

The San Antonio missions are a vital part of Texas history. See them all-don't miss a single one. What a way of life--true communities.

Each mission has its own unique story and Mission Conception is a must acknowledging contribution of the Spanish in Texas. The restoration done to the church enhances its beauty.

This mission was restored a few years ago and the restorers uncovered some original painted artwork which you MUST see. And such a lovely mission.

This place is a gem to visit when in the San Antonio area. The church is lovely and has mass in the chapel on a regular basis. The Franciscan monks still run the religious aspects of the missions. You may be lucky enough to witness a wedding ceremony on the grounds. Long before this land was acquired by National Parks... More

Make sure to take camera, explore the whole thing, and visit the virgin statues about 200 yards to the left of the front of the church entrance.

We were fortunate to attend the 12 noon Mariachi Mass on the Sunday we were in S.A. We thoroughly enjoyed the music, as well as the deacon's homily. The service is bilingual.
