We stopped by here on our last day in San Antonio, once we began walking the grounds we wished we had more time. These historic grounds and the structure itself are so impressive. It's a very peaceful place to walk and think about it's place...More

This was my favorite of the 2 missions I visited today. Although much smaller, than the larger Mission San Jose, it has a subtle charm that I found very appealing and peaceful. I also had the place pretty much to myself. Lots of the original...More

We arrived a few minutes before closing. but all we saw was great. Very impressive place, would suggest you plan an hour or more to visit and study it. History is impressive.

The highlight of the Mission is the painting restoration. We wish that more had been done. The Mission is small, just the church remains.

Mission Concepcion was beautiful! It is still an active mission and has a beautiful church. The mission was very complete with very little ruin. I wish there was more to educate on though.

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.
