El Charco del Chan
Es la poza que da nombre al proyecto de conservación. Encajada abajo en la cañada, El Charco del Ingenio ha sido durante siglos fuente de leyendas populares. Su espíritu guardian es El Chan, ser mítico del inframundo que mora en sus misteriosas aguas y que a veces muestra su poder terrible a los humanos que se acercan.La poza presenta cambios de tonalidad a lo largo del año y se alimenta de un manantial permanente, una de las últimas fuentes naturales de San Miguel de Allende.English:
