This mission is in a neighborhood and worth seeing. Plenty of parking. Small area and does not take long to walk around. You will be glad you made the visit.

All of the missions are amazing, and Mission Concepcion is no exception. I recommend one of the cooler months rather than going in the summer. Temps are often above 100 and you just won't be able to enjoy it as much. The grounds are well-maintained...More

A beautiful old stone Mission, built in 1716. It is the oldest unrestored stone Churches in America and is part of the San Antonio National Historical Park. Easily "self-tour".

Beautiful ruins of old mission. Great spot for early morning or late evening photographs! If you want a full interpretive experience, go to Mission San Jose. But this one is my personal favorite when the lighting is right.

This mission didn’t have as much land to explore so it was a very quick stop. It was cool to checkout and easy to get to via the bus.

This was our first stop on the mission trail. We were lucky to find there was a man from the mission in the church who gave a talk about it. Very informative. They have a 12:30 Sunday mass that has a mariachi band playing. Pretty...More

We attended this attraction as a part of a guided tour. Large grounds plus the mission itself. Very interesting.

We toured this mission as a group and enjoyed the docent's explanation throughout. He was very knowledgeable. He made a special trip to be there in addition to his normal Monday. The frescoes are original. It provides a good introduction to the mission trail.

A very interesting, well preserved structure. Hard to believe it has stood since the early 1700s. Still functions as an active church.

Each mission we visited held it's own beauty and uniqueness. This one is very well maintained and is free to visit and tour. The peacefulness and sacredness is felt as soon as you enter. Oh, if the walls could speak!

I recommend the movie at the visitors center and a guided tour if you really want to learn the particulars. I think $30 would be worth it for the multiple sites.
