The La Baells reservoir is a hydraulic infrastructure located on the Llobregat river, in the Berguedà region. The dam is located in the municipality of Cercs.

These days the reservoir is very low in water and the edges of the reservoir draw figures of dryness, some spectacular mosaics of cracks in the earth, as we see in The Photos of La Vanguardia Readers.

The dam was inaugurated in 1976. Concrete containing boulders of different sizes was used in some places and, in others, reinforced concrete.

Its construction caused the displacement of part of the population of the municipality of Sant Salvador de la Vadella, which was left under water, to a newly built town.
