More interesting than the Alamo

Not only is this place more interesting than the Alamo, it's bigger and less crowded. It offers ample parking and is easy to reach on the Mission Trail. If you go at dusk you can... read more

Not only is this place more interesting than the Alamo, it's bigger and less crowded. It offers ample parking and is easy to reach on the Mission Trail. If you go at dusk you can get some great pictures outside.

When you tour the missions do not forget this one! By far one of my favorite. If you get the trolley tour you can get dropped off here and picked back up. It really is peaceful and not quite as touristy as the others.

This mission was dedicated in 1755. The grounds are a beautiful park with large shade trees. The church sanctuary was accessed by a small door in the back. There was a small visitor's center on-site with washrooms. Parking was limited.

The church has been restored by the WPA and is approximately 80% original, looking much like it did in the mid-eighteenth century. This gives the photographer ample opportunities to make images. Personally, this had the best interior of the five missions in San Antonio. Also, it has original wall art. This is a working, active church, so be respectful when... More

I loved this Mission, there were a lot of people there but it didn't feel like it... if that makes sense. It is very peaceful and there is so much history to see.

It's free and nice historic monument. So if you want to kill time in San Antonio, then it's worth 30 min of your time

We did the entire mission trail and enjoyed all of the history. Probably the optimum time to visit because of weather would be October to April, but it was very interesting.

Great from a historical perspective but not very exciting on its own. Worth visiting if you're wanting to see all the missions.

This is a smaller mission but with so much history in the walls. The church is still being used today. Definitely worth a visit.

Mission Concepcion is such a beautiful stop on the Mission Trail. Don't skip it! While you're there, look for the hidden gems. My most favorite thing at Concepcion is the doorway. Don't just go in. Stop. Look at the stones. Look closely. That graffiti, the names, the dates, the horse head.... That's history too. For many years, the Mission was... More
