I visited three missions, the Alamo, The San Jose and Concepcion. The Concepcion was by far the most interesting. It is in its original state. It is a working church, with services on a regular basis.

If you only have time to see 2-3 of the missions on the Mission Trail, be sure to see this one. It is amazing to experience the 250 years of history that the Concepcion represents. I recommend going to the visitor's center at the Mission San Jose (a short drive away) first, to see the film about the indigenous people... More

This was stop one for us of the two missions we saw and this one was my favorite. It is small enough to keep the attention of my 4 kids who were with me. My complaint would be the lack of informational signs. There just aren't many as you walk around.

A lovely example of missionary style, function, decoration and operation. The only mission that has not been revolted, and it is still an active parish. Don't miss the alcove room with restored frescoes and look up to take in heavenly ironwork.

A quick 35 tour by a docent told us how the Spainards brought the missionaries to initially provide protection for the local tribes of Indians from attacks from the northern Indian tribes. They taught them trades, agriculture and Catholicism. Again, re-living history. This mission tour is FREE and well worth your time.

We visited all 4 missions. The two closest to Downtown - Mission San Jose and Concepcion - were the most impressive. No charge to visit the missions.

This was the last of the 5 missions we saw in San Antonio and as advertised the church was the best preserved. The graffiti and broken windows in the brick building next to it made me sad.

Beautiful historic active mission, that still holds services on Sunday. Well maintained inside, and very pretty. Ideal for a nice outside day, romantic for couples. Rent a Bcycle and ride from mission to mission all the way to the Riverwalk!

Another great San Antonio mission that you don't want to miss exploring. We spent about 45 minutes here and enjoyed the time spent.

We went very late in the day so we were the only people there. This is so well preserved and I was really able to imagine how life on the original missions might have been. There is an amazingly peaceful energy surrounding this place. Would be good to go and relax for a few hours sitting in the surrounding park... More
