The Toba reservoir on the Júcar river

The Toba reservoir (embalse de la Toba) is a reservoir in Cuenca province in Spain (Castilla–La Mancha) of great beauty due to the pine forests that surround it and the spectacular rock formations that rise hundreds of meters above the reservoir.

The Toba reservoir was built in 1925, as part of the hydroelectric conditioning project of the Júcar river in a 20km stretch within the Serranía de Cuenca and which would serve to regulate the Júcar river itself, in addition to channeling water to the Villalba hydroelectric plant of the Sierra.
