Only one building to see which is locked. It was not worth stopping in. If you want to see an old Mission go to Mission Jose which dates back to 1742, that one is worth walking around and seeing.

I have traveled to the San Antonio area many times over the past 20 years, but I had never ventured off of the beaten to find this hidden treasure. This is a very well maintained and preserved mission. I highly recommend adding all 5 missions...More

San Antonio has some great history and this is one of many. The church is still in good shape. You can rent bikes there to go on the trails to different places in San Antonio.

Dedicated in 1755, Mission Concepción appears very much as it did over two centuries ago. It is the oldest unrestored stone church in America. Probably just as important as a historical monument as the Alamo. Wonderful grounds! A must for history buffs! Wonderful visit!

This was the best of the churches on the mission trail. Parking was good here as elsewhere and it also had a bike rental stand.

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
