One of the four missions along the trail. These missions were built in the 1700's and are in various ruins. They all have the main church standing and are used today for services.

The mission trail makes it so easy to visit the various missions. You can walk, bike, or drive from mission to mission. We drove and found that they are easy to get to, close together, and you can see them all in an afternoon - if you drive.

We rented a bike from B-cycle ($12 each) and rode to this mission from the main Riverwalk. This portion of the extended Riverwalk was much more serene and the visit to the mission was very interesting - and at no cost. A guided tour provided a good general history of the area.

We rented bicycles on the King William District and decided to bike through our way to the missions. From the King William district is quite some distance. The Mission is in good shape and there is a visitor center for information. I really didn't find anything impressive about this mission, it is a nice place to go and read about... More

This is one of four beautiful missions in San Antonio that are part of the National Park Service. They are all different and interesting. It is well worth visiting all of the missions. It might take most of a day to travel around the city to see the missions. We really enjoyed our visit to the sites.

The Mission Concepcion looks a little squeezed into the neighborhood with busy roads surrounding it. The church is an active parish. You do not get a good feel for the mission grounds here because it is mostly the church that remains. Make a quick stop but don't skip it on your way to see all the missions in this National...

Well restored mission. Closest to downtown, but should continue down the mission trail to see all the missions.

Mission conception is beautiful. Short drive from Alamo. It's a church and has a lot of history! Visits are free and have no guided tour but there are bulletin board of info about history, as long as you can read you will enjoy.
