We visited all of the missions while in San Antonio and this is a beautiful historic site. The history is interesting. The fact it has survived so intact is amazing, thanks to the wonderful people who care for Americas state and national parks and their many hidden treasures.

This is still an active mission so I say avoid going in the morning. You can walk around on your own and see the grounds and see things on your own. Inside the Mission though it may be small, it is still beautiful and historical. When you visit San Antonio I suggest you do the Mission Trail so you can... More

October 28, 1835, Mexican troops under Colonel Domingo Ugartechea and Texian insurgents led by James Bowie and James Fannin fought the Battle of Concepción here. It was designated a National Historic Landmark on April 15, 1970 and is part of San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. The Mission Concepción was designated as a World Heritage Site.

Mission Concepcion is one of the three missions on the Mission Trail and is still functioning for church services - visitors might want to avoid going in the mornings when services are likely to occur. Parking is free and plentiful, and visitors can wander the grounds at their leisure. The chapel itself is small but retains much of its historical... More

All the missions on the mission trail in SAN Antonio are a must see as we'll as the aqueduct. Each mission has its own beauty and charm.

I went at the "wrong" time when there was a church service going on and so the parking lot was full and even the grass area had cars parked. Only after I waited 10 minutes in the car then I saw people coming out from the church (after the service) only then I realized that the historical monument are also... More

Surprised to see how much is preserved. A wonderful place to see and a credit to those who have worked to preserve it.

Of the missions still standing in San Antonio, this one has become my favorite. The compound of San Jose is larger, but this mission gives a flavor of life during the mission period without being overwhelming. The church is still in use and conducts mariachi Masses (which I did not attend, therefore cannot rate that aspect). I visited on a... More

Mission Concepcion is a World Heritage sight that shows how these missions were strategically placed throughout San Antonio. It is kept up very well with nice walking areas with informative connections to tour phone numbers that give you a talking tour. Very nice and if you go on Sunday you have the added bonus of attending a service in the... More
