Beautiful church to visit. A ways out of town, so easy to get to with the tour. You can drive to it from downtown.

Having toured San Jose Mission (see my separate review), this one was a bit of a disappointment. Except for the church itself, there is not as much here and it is not as well marked. Unlike San Jose, this mission has not been restored. In...More

I’m fully aware of being controversial, but if you want to experience a Spanish mission in Texas, skip the Alamo and visit Mission Concepcion. Well preserved, albeit in the middle of houses and industrial parks, the mission offers a great place to reflect on history...More

This mission is a beautiful example of the history and architectural influence of the region. I am told it is one of the best preserved areas to see authentic frescos inside. It is a great place to visit while walking or biking the Riverwalk.

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.
