Construida en el año de 1926, por el gobierno del presidente Plutarco Elías Calles, considerada como el primer distrito de riego y almacenamiento de agua en el centro de nuestro país. Localizada al pie de la Sierra Fría con una capacidad de 340 millones de metros cúbicos, es la obra de irrigación de mayor magnitud y capacidad en la región.

We find this place at the bottom of the Sierra Fría. Its vegetation is mixed and we have a tendency to have an arid climate. We can visit it all the year. Activities done are sport fishing, water skiing, small boat promenade, abseiling, horseback ride, camping, among others.

Then, we take the deviation going to San José de Gracia and on the kilometre 14 de dicho entronque se encuentra la cabecera municipal de San José de Gracia, al final de éste se encuentra La Presa.

 Natural Canyons 

It is a natural richness which is marked out of the places most isolated and hidden of the barrage Calles where we have impressive canyons and precipices. In this place we have semi-desert vegetation (fauna and flora, rocky forms, surprising that are the testimony of the stones legends appreciated during a tour in launch). We explore this marvellous place showing us the past and opening up the vestiges of the chichimeca history on “El Cerrito de en Medio”, it allows to value and to appreciate the nature which is part of our territory, our cultural heritage allowing knowing our origin on the earth.
