The Santa Fe reservoir must be the only one we have full in Catalonia, it is overflowing and it is very joyful to see it like this with this spectacular greenery, as can be seen in these images in The Photos of the Readers of La Vanguardia.

This reservoir owes its name to the stream on which it is built, that of Santa Fe, a tributary of the Tordera river, and belongs to the municipality of Fogàs de Monclús, in Vallès Oriental.

However, the reservoir drinks from various streams such as Passavets or Gualba, although this summer there is still not much water flowing through these streams in the absence of more rain.

The history of this reservoir dates back to the beginning of the 20th century when the Barcelona businessman and publisher Ramón Montaner bought the Santa Fe Valley.

His goal was to build a luxury hotel and, since there was no electricity, he ordered a dam to be built. Finally, the reservoir had to be built in 1935.
