Was able to go to all of the Missions on the bike trail. Great exercise and beautiful views. You can rent bikes to use or bring your own. Make sure to bring water with you! And if you go on Sundays, you can attend church in the old buildings.

Worth seeing. Beautifully restored. We like to talk out-of-town visitors to the Missions. Usually we just do 2 of them, plus of course the Alamo. Recommend tourists get off the River Walk to see the missions.

This mission is a beautiful example of the historic mission era. It takes only a short time to get a feel for the mission or you can spend longer. A docent in the chapel who took the time to explain some of the unique features of the chapel and point out parts that are original and parts that have been... More

Everyone goes to the Alamo as it is right on the Riverwalk. We went to this mission and San Jose mission by taking the city bus. I would highly encourage going to these two missions. This is deceiving from the outside - we were glad we stopped by.

The Mission Concepcion is the most original and least altered of the missions so it's definitely worth seeing. It's not as large as the Mission San Jose site since that mission was been restored and they added the outside walls and living quarters. We visited the Mission Concepcion and the Mission San Jose in the same morning and felt that... More

Not as famous as the Alamo, but I really like this Mission! It has a park to stroll around, its well kept, and its still used for Catholic services. I still need to visit some more Missions in the area, if they are like this one, I cannot wait!

This little mission, only 2.5 miles south of the Alamo (also a San Antonio mission) and downtown, and otherwise convenient to two interstates and a major highway, is a cozy little historical spot and an actual church. Today is Aug. 15 and tonight, according to the staff, the sun's rays will cut through a hole above the entrance of the... More

This is a beautiful mission. It has been restored and it is full of history. You can imagine what it was like to live there at that time.

The history here is well worth the visit. It was very hot while we were there and hard to find any shade. The church was closed for a special function. There was a mill out back that was interesting and a glass blower on grounds selling his product.
