The site of the Mission San Juan Bautista Malibat, located to 31 and a kilometers to the south of the Mission of Nuestra Señora de Loreto in the coast of the California Gulf and the creek of Ligüí, it was elected 12 of July of 1705 for the Missionaries Juan María Salvatierra and Pedro de Ugarte. In November of 1705 the Missionary Ugarte built a small stone chapel in the north margin of the creek, being established as Missionary resident minister. The epidemic of the pest of 1708 reduced in much the indigenous population and injured also the health of the Missionary Ugarte, who there was of be replaced in 1709 for the Missionary Francisco Peralta. The Missionary Clement Guillen replaced to this last in 1714, serving as Missionary resident minister until 1721, in which the mission was abandoned permanently due to the
hostility of the Indians, the decadence of the population and the water shortage. The Missionary Juan María de Salvatierra and Pedro deUgarte, navigated to the south de Loreto to build the Mission de Ligüí. Upon finding an appropriate place for this, is I remained the Missionary Pedro de Ugarte, who was the superintendent with building it. After laborious five years delivered the mission already ended to the Missionary Francisco Peralta, followed by the Missionary Clement Guillen, pioneer of the first road to La Paz. Half of the mission still was existing before the construction of the principal highway would be ended. The mud and the sand needed to build the highway were extracted from a nearby mine to the site from the mission. Torrential rains and erosion caused by the quarry I destroy the ruins thoroughly. Ligüí or Malibat it was chosen to establish the mission around the end of 1703, but it was not but until 1705 when were given instructions concretize for its creation. 21 of November of that year left the Missionary Pedro de Ugarte to fulfil them according to the indications received: I build a small adobe chapel in the north margin of the creek and there was established as father resident minister. Broken his health, the Missionary Ugarte was replaced in 1709 for the Missionary Francisco Peralta, to who continued to him in 1714, the Missionary Clement Guillen de Castro. This missionary head an expedition in order to finding the road by land between the prison of Loreto and the mission of La Paz, that was by be established. Left 11 of November of 1720 and on Friday 6 of December arrived to the bay of La Paz, debilitated and whithout provisions.

Mediate fruit of this expedition was the finding of a site adapted for the establishment of the mission Nuestra Señora de los Dolores, the one which is I established in August of 1721 after that the expeditionary abandoned, together with the natives, that of Ligüí due to the hostility of the Cochimies, as well as to the decadence of the population by the epidemics and the water shortage.
