Smaller and less visited than Mission San Jose, this mission is worth going to see. Tours are not generally given. We were lucky to find a volunteer who gave us a very informative tour. It is on the VIA 40 Bus route.

We lucked out when we visited this mission. There was a docent there who spoke in length about the history of the Mission. We really enjoyed learning about all of the 4 missions history. There was no entrance fee and lots of free parking.

The Rose Window draws people here and to research the story of its origin. Do not forget to view the beautiful sculptures above the main entrance. Inside, the church is small, but welcoming.

Concepcion is the northernmost mission on the mission trail. Very peaceful and tours are available. Closest Miision to the Alamo and down town if transportation is a concern. There is a nice park for the kids with playground nearby.

This is the oldest operational church in North America. The preservation work that has gone into preserving this church is amazing. It's amazing how a church like this still functions in the 21st century. Daniel, the NPS ranger, gave us great insight and explained so...More
