My wife and I toured all 4 missions. Concepcion is very interesting as its still in use as an active parish church. Its was an experience to hear the bells calling to start mass on a Sunday morning and looking at this ancient structure.

We managed to attend a tour with one of the rangers and it was extremely good. He was patient with the 2 handicapped tour members and very informative.

This was, by far, our favorite of the missions. The exterior is beautiful which is only outmatched by the beauty within the Mission. They are currently restoring the wall paintings, and the sanctuary is not only striking but also moving. Please leave donations as the cost is free but they are working hard to restore it back to the original... More

We really enjoyed seeing this as the last of the churches we visited on the Mission Trail. It's a great way to experience Texas history. It has had some restoration work done and it is very beautiful. The main altar is quite lovely. I'm glad we saw all four churches as it is most difficult to compare one to the... More

We completed the entire Mission Walk. Every one of the Missions was different but all were beautiful. Each one is still an active Catholic parish. This is completely worth the time!

Probably the less crowded of all the missions. Great 18th century painting in the chapels. The ranger was friendly and was singing the whole time we were there. it was very special.

This was the first mission we visited outside of San Antonio's downtown area. It is inspiring and the grounds are beautiful.

Loved this Mission. It was the best kept historical spot besides the Alamo. Not a lot to do but still a great free visit to learn the local history and impact on culture still today.
