AN UNNECESSED NATURAL SHOW, SURROUNDED BY URBAN LEGENDS
POZO DE LAS ANIMAS
This singular landscape amazes for the curiousness of its formation. It has two large depressions called dolinas, which were eroded by underground rivers giving rise to two mirrors of green-turquoise water, two huge circular holes of 300 and 265 meters in diameter, with slopes that plummet from, approximately, 90 meters high . A thin wall separates both mirrors of water.
In Pozo de las Animas the wind blows permanently and here lies the cause of the whistle that, according to the legend, corresponds to the voices of souls in pain (the original inhabitants of these lands, the Mapuche, called this suggestive place "Trolope- Co ", or " agua del gritadero de las ánimas"), hence for centuries its name is the protagonist of several legends that have passed in the history of rural people from generation to generation.
