The guide asked us to go on a tour. We agreed and the weather cooperated! There are shade areas so I would say it would be fine if really hot! We toured the church and learned more with wonderful guide than we would alone! He even played a little flute..really magical experience!

We stumbled across this small mission on our way to one of the others and decided to stop. Only a small portion of this mission is standing; thankfully the chapel is in good condition. In fact, it is the most beautiful, peaceful chapel I have ever visited. We arrived just after "Marriachi Mass" started, so we were not going to... More

The interesting thing about this mission compared to others is that they have some of the original frescos visible and it's been through a lot less compared to San Jose. It's smaller than San Jose but still pretty. This mission was about a 30 minute visit for us. There is less parking here than at San Jose but that was... More

We went to all of the Missions in the San Antonio National Historic sites. It was interesting tour of some important sites in the area and all 5 missions were easy to locate. It was well worth the time to go and see them. Mission Concepcion was the largest and most impressive.

We visited this mission during our stay in San Antonio. It was very beautiful and peaceful. It did not take as long to see as the San Jose mission, but it was still very worth our while. There were not many people there. We went around 4:00pm. There is parking and restrooms available. I would recommend this to anyone visiting... More

A trip to Mission Concepcion gives a sense of history of the group of missions in the area. It is well worth the trip and a walking tour of the church and outbuildings.

This site is amazing, I felt like I was looking at the ruins of an old castle. It's a small church and grounds but worth your time. The grotto, which is just outside the front of the church is beautiful as well. Doesn't require as much time as other missions to see. Trolley tours take you to this Mission.

Visited the Mission Concepcion. Great docent to guide us. This was the only mission that was built to completion without modifications. Other missions had been modified during construction or in years past.
