4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
Explore the Mission Trail's 300-year-old Mission Concepción. This mission, built by Franciscan friars and often considered the most well-preserved of all Texas missions, was founded in 1716. It was consequently moved from its original location to San Antonio, where Pajalats typically occupied the mission. The Battle of Concepcion was fought here in 1835, and the mission was named a National Historic Landmark more than 100 years later in 1970. Contemplate the historical events that occurred here, view the beautiful architecture and interior frescoes, and even attend Catholic Mass on Sundays.

  • This mission was the last on the line but was well worth the time The visitors centre was closed for renovations but didn't detract from the missin itself 
  • Built in early 1700's another beautiful example of the Spanish stone work; Great alter and historic art on the walls. 
  • My favorite of the missions so far because it looks more authentic. It is Simple, but Beautiful. The information office was closed for remodelling so getting a momory was done only with our camera. 
  • Seriously so cool. Its totally worth seeing. This is by far one of the better missions in the area. A lot of great history and architecture.
  • It is inspiring to stand in a place where people have worshiped for 300 hundred years. Also the first major engagement of the Texas Revolution, the Battle of Concepción was fought here.
  • Just stunning. Definitely worth the short drive out from town. Beautifully preserved and the architecture is glorious.
  • If you have a day in San Antonio and enjoy our nation's system of parks and monuments, you should definitely visit all of them, including this one. They are all beautiful in their own way and very historic. Easily accessible parking too.
  • Best actually preserved mission in the area. Cool historic site.
