“Sunday Mariachi Mass - fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Not Catholic, but read about the Mariachi Mass at San Jose and planned to go for the "flavor." Our Trolley Tour driver suggested we try the Mass at Concepcion instead because of their superb accoustics, and we were not disappointed. Unfortunately, while we were there, the government was playing it's little game of "let's shut down all the National Parks," so we were unable to see the other missions, but we were not at all disappointed with our time at Mission Conception.

“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Spent time here enjoying the day. The Mission is small but beautiful. They have several displays and original items to look at. The mission has an outside prayer/meditation space that is very tranquil.

“Well preserved”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

This was a bit of a letdown after mission San Jose, but still worth a visit. The property is beautifully preserved and rich with history.

“Nicely preserved”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Enjoyed seeing this mission however thanks to the Govt shutdown we could not go inside. The outside was nicely preserved and our trolley driver did a nice job of informing us of the history surrounding the mission
