Just mud down there, not water. Franco once thought this was a good idea to build, however where there is not much rain... Behind the barrage the chapel by the cave of the Virgin in the Rocks is seen. / Nur Schlamm dort, kein Wasser. Franco dachte mal sowas zu bauen waere eine gute Idee, aber deswegen regnet es ja auch nicht mehr... Unterhalb der Staumauer kann man die Kapelle der Virgen de la Pena bei der Hoehle sehen.

Hmmm., odd... sorry about the weird exif, it is my fault I fear. I replaced this pic as I incidently did upload the wrong shot at first, but it seems the replacing replaced only the pic, not the data. This was of course shot with the canon and the 200mm telezoom ......

Bizarre construction when there is no water.

Interesting what you mentioned about the exif not being replaced when you replaced the picture. I replace a pic every once and a while but never checked the exif as I always assumed it too would be replaced. Hmmm...

There was some more water, some 65 years ago when the thing was new and it still sort of hoards the rainfall a bit, it is enough for a little wild forest needing no watering. It is a bird reservate now comperably green and full of insects, hiking down there is very nice and interesting. it just turned out fully useless for farming purposes.
