This is the main mission of the various ones around San Antonio. It is lovely and definitely worth the trip. If you can see all the missions from the furthest out to the closest in.

We went on the Mission Trail, so we very much enjoyed this Mission. They are all just beautiful, as we love the architecture, the inside beauty of the sanctuary, the history, and the walk around the grounds.

There is one day of the year that the sun shines through a small window and shows light on Mary and a spot on the floor. Go when the guide is there who will fill you in on the history, but don't be in a...More

All 4 of the missions are worth stopping at. It was interesting to see the differences in each. All are also free with free parking so no real excuse not to go. Keep in mind all still have church services on Sunday.

We throughly enjoyed our visit to Conception. Mr. Valdez is exceptional at telling the history of the Missions and specfically about Conception. This is a must see especially if Mr. Valdez is available which is almost everyday. Highly recommend

This is probably the best preserved mission in its original condition. Much different from the missions that I had visited in California. Peaceful church. Great place to communicate with God.

Mission Conception is just one of the old missions along the famous Mission Trails. Each of them is unique and all are well worth the time to visit.

I say make time to see this mission! It’s beautiful and the fact they still hold church services on Sunday is amazing. I have to say, this mission has so much more character than the Alamo. Just my opinion

Amazing the craftsmanship that has been preserved in this mission. It is by far the best of the group. There are hand painted murals that are nearing 200 years old. Hand built wooden doors that are still incredibly solid. The hinges are hand formed 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.

At this time it's completely open. As the Riverwalk is extended, that may change
