During their brief presence in Baja California, the Franciscans established Visita de la Presentación, a subordinate mission station for San Javier, about 16 kilometers south of that mission, west of Loreto in Baja California Sur.

The visita was founded by Francisco Palóu in 1769. It was abandoned in 1817. Substantial remnants of stone structures and the water system survive.
