Built by Franciscan friars and now part of the UNESCO-designated San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, Mission Concepcion stands out for the quality of its preservation. After its establishment in 1716, the mission moved from its original location to San Antonio, where Pajalats typically occupied it. The Battle of Concepcion took place 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.

You get a clear picture of just how significant and beautiful these missions were. The ranger talk was fascinating if a little long. more »
Mission Concepcion may not be the biggest of San Antonio's missions, but it is definitely the most charming! My husband and I began attending mass here a couple of years ago - we loved it so much we became members of the parish. Everyone is friendly and welcoming! Father David Garcia - who is going to retire soon - has an incredible way of speaking to, not "speaking at," the congregation. We attend Sunday mass at noon which is their mariachi mass. If you are visiting, attend this mass. The music is beautiful and the mood is magical.
Our second favorite mission mission in San Antonio. The Rock quarry that built the mission can still be seen and is on the grounds. The art painted on the plaster is well preserved for you to enjoy! Like most missions from Texas past church services is still being held on the grounds and you can go through the chapel.
