Reconstructed village layout of Loma Alta, the archeological site believed to be the early historic pueblo of San Juan Evangelista just north of today’s Presido, Texas that was visited by the Espejo entrada in 1582-1583, but unmentioned in later accounts (and presumably abandoned by the late 17th century). Because the village was abandoned in early historic times and never reoccupied, the site layout could be discerned from rectangular and circular mounded depressions, some of which were excavated.
