Mission Concepcion is the best preserved of all the 4 missions in San Antonio. It is within a easy and short driving distance from San Antonio downtown. It is amazing to see such a beautiful historical mission dedicated more than 250 years ago. It also happens to be the oldest unrestored stone church in US. One can appreciate the original frescoes which are still visible in several of the inside rooms. It is indeed a must visit attraction for anyone visiting San Antonio.

Walk the interior and exterior. One can see the beauty that this mission once had. We enjoyed seeing the mission.

If you take the VIVA bus #40 on the mission trail, this is the first stop. We found this church building to be the most impressive and the best preserved of the missions. Some of the ramparts and adjacent buildings are not in as good a state of preservation as at one or two of the other missions, but this church is remarkably preserved and even contains some original frescoes.

This mission is a beautiful example of the history and architectural influence of the region. I am told it is one of the best preserved areas to see authentic frescos inside. It is a great place to visit while walking or biking the Riverwalk.

Visited this today and was the best of the missions. So much history in one place .. with so much in tact too.

There is a museum to look round and there is a stunning church which is still used.

A little piece of history to take in - it only takes a few hours to walk around

We didn't do all the missions but this one definitely was the best. Get there with an uber from downtown or from any of the other missions. It's not as crowded as mission San Jose but I'd advise to go to San Jose first to get a better understanding of the history. That said, Concepcion is just beautiful, and more importantly, it's all original.

Beautiful grounds, cute small grist mill in back of church, very nice visitor center with park ranger guided walks. Keep in mind if you go on a Sunday it is an active church and you cannot see the inside of the church while services are in progress.

The architecture, history, and the frescoes are absolutely wonderful. I am moved each time I visit. The prayer garden tucked off to the side is a peaceful place to pray, or just enjoy the tranquility of nature.
