Mission Concepción

photo: January 2000

Named in honor of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, Mission Concepción was founded in 1716 by the Franciscans Fathers in what was then Spanish territory. Today, it is considered one of the best preserved missions along the trail of missions that starts with The Alamo in downtown San Antonio and extends for some miles to the south (the mission trail can be seen by clicking on the words "the trail of missions"). Mission Concepción and other missions are maintained as state historical sites and national parks even though they are active parishes today.
