El Batán
Vestigios de lo que fue probablemente la primera obra hidráulica (ingenio) de San Miguel, a fines del siglo XVI. El agua caía del acueducto y hacía girar una rueda vertical de madera, cuyo eje se apoyaba en una estructura de piedra, generando fuerza motriz. Esta tecnología se utilize para moler granos, y para tartar lana en los obrajes textiles durante el Virreinato.English:
The Water Mill
Remaining vestiges of what probably was San Miguel's first hydraulic work (called ingenio), at the end of 16th century. Water spilled from the aqueduct spinning a vertical wooden wheel with its axis on a stone base, thus generating energy. This technology was applied to milling of seeds and also to treatment of wool at the textile factories during the Spanish rule.
