This was a very nice experience. It is all original from the 1700'sand in remarkable shape. No A/C. August might get pretty bad. Worth the stop to visit.

This mission is the nearest to downtown & it is worth seeing. The church is beautifully preserved and still in use.

We started our visit to the missions with this first one. Unfortunately we missed the tour but we enjoyed walking around, both inside and out. It's worth a stop to see if you are visiting the area.

As I walked to the doorway of the mission a couple who were leaving suggested that I stand at the altar area and sing out loud. I am not a singer but I had to try. I sang a favourite hymn and couldn't believe the acoustics. Even I sounded good!! I hope other visitors will try this. It was one... More

There more to see and learn at the other missions especially San Jose with lots of info in the visitor centre. But see this one if you want to do the complete set!

The mission is a wonderful experience. It is small and very manageable. the tour guide was excellent: very informative and pleasant. She pointed out many interesting features of the church with its faded frescos. Three paintings are hung in the church that are not original to the church. The stories about their discovery, however, are fascinating and an added treat.... More

It is amazing that the walls are still standing around the mission and the history was great. I could have spent half a day there.

Out of all the missions, I believe this one has the best preserved original wall paintings. We hiked the mission trail and visited all the missions, Concepcion being the last on the trail. It's a medium sized mission, but it's definitely worth seeing. It also has a bike rental spot out front so you can return/check-out a bike to ride... More

Love the Missions and seeing how different they were as the years went on and when different countries ruled San Antonio.
