What a beautiful place! It was built in 1721 and has never really been restored other than normal upkeep. You can still see some of the paintings on the walls inside the church. The grounds are lovely and make for a nice, leisurely stroll. We...More

We started by talking to the guide in the welcome center and it was an interesting 5 minute history lesson. We then went on a tour of the mission. It is fairly small, since much of it is no longer standing (go to Mission San...More

This is a beautiful mission. Unfortunately, the rooms have no original artifacts or furniture that might make them appear as how they might have been used. The church nave is gorgeous and quite peaceful. One can only imagine the hustle and bustle around the mission...More

We visited this Mission the very last one out of four. I think this is the smallest and easy access from parking lot. Also in a hot day it is nice to be inside of the building with very thick walls! Quiet and peaceful! Visit...More

I figured that if I were to see the Alamo, I should expand my visits to a few other Missions in the area. 12 minutes south of town brings you here. An old mission with a wealth of history and also still a place of...More

It’s great that this is an active church! It is beautiful inside and out. The frescoes are amazing. We enjoyed this mission the most even though the grounds weren’t as large as some of the others

Mission Concepcion is an active mission with masses in English and Spanish. This mission holds a special place in my heart as my first born son was married here by The Archbishop Garcia-Siller and 5 other concelebrating priests with mariachis providing the hymns! The church...More

Mission Concepcion is all about the cathedral. Almost as large as Mission San Jose, steeped in history and a must see inside and out. The grounds at this Mission are not as large. Visiting Concepcion takes much less time due to no surrounding walls or...More

We saw this mission and the three others all in one morning from 9am to 11am and we didn't hurry, had the addresses and open times. The churches are each inside of a fort with fort walls, some still there and other buildings. We're thankful...More

While you should start any visits to the four missions in the National Park by going to San Jose (where there's a movie and a guided tour to be had), Concepion should probably be next on your list. It's only a few minutes away and...More

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.
