During their brief presence in Baja California, the Franciscans established Visita de la Presentación, a subordinate mission station for Misión San Francisco Javier de Viggé-Biaundó, about 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) south of that mission.

The site is west of Loreto in present day Loreto Municipality of Baja California Sur state.

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