Mission Concepcion, San Antonio

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. Our San Antonio tour planner makes visiting Mission Concepcion and other San Antonio attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • What a beautiful and historic mission. It’s not far from the river and is connected to a very well maintained park and wooded areas. It’s proximity to local neighborhoods is close but when you’re there you hardly notice because of the stature of the mission. The inside had a few informational panels teaching about the church as well, and it is open to tours and groups. Beautiful area to explore on a sunny day. If you’re at the church you are also within walking distance of the riverside park where there are lots of newly developed trails to explore.
  • A cool historic mission. Very close to the river and is connected to a very clean kept park. Inside read and learn about its history and the church, you can go alone, with the family, or even be apart of a group tour. Beautiful area to explore on a sunny day. Its fun to have a day of hiking and exploring the mission and nearby trails.
