Mission Concepción

Dedicated in 1755, Mission Concepción appears very much as it did over two centuries ago. It stands proudly as the oldest unrestored stone church in America. In its heyday, colorful geometric designs covered its surface, but the patterns have long since faded or been worn away. However, original frescos are still visible in several of the rooms.

Hays Street Bridge

The Hays Street Bridge is a dedicated pedestrian and bicycle facility. The main trusses were originally built in 1881 and were relocated to the current site in 1910. A major rehabilitation project was begun in 2009 to restore this beautiful bridge for cyclists and pedestrians to enjoy.
