This was the first mission we visited along the trail. It was lovely. There were several school groups there. So, as we visited the mission we would occasionally stop near a group and listen to their tour guide talk of the mission. Very educational, interesting and summed up what we had already read about it.

Mission Conception is the north end of the Missions Trail (San Antonio Missions National Historic Park). It is a great representation of the Mission Era. Although parts of it are in ruins, it still has a majestic appeal. It is worth taking in all the missions on the Missions Trail.

When you walk into this restored Mission you feel like you have come home. It is, in my opinion, the best of all the Missions. The Sunday Mariachi mass will keep you wanting to come to this church. There is no doubt in my mind that you will enjoy this Mission.

There are a lot of picture perfect places to photograph along the tour of the mission. Lots of historic items along with an active church that is so beautiful inside. Remember to remove your hat when entering church be respectful after all it is a church.

I made the mistake of walking to here from the Alamo- about 5 miles along the river but once I got here it was worth it. The mission is well maintained and gives a great historical perspective on the area.

A stop on an all day tour. Could have a bit longer at this location. Beautiful old structure. They have done a wonderful job of restoring and maintaining these important locations

This mission is not very big but the church is beautiful. The rock quarry out front is also very interesting.
