Some 17 kilometres to the southeast, the River Corbones flows into a vast body of water, the reservoir built for irrigation purposes. 

La Puebla de Cazalla’s reservoir was completed in the mid-1990s to irrigate over 3,400 hectares of land in the municipalities of La Puebla de Cazalla and Marchena.

For many years, motorboats were allowed on the reservoir. Nowadays, only rowing and sailing is permitted. The reservoir is only at 30% of its capacity due to drought. The vegetation surrounding the reservoir is Mediterranean forest, mainly oak, lentisk, palm heart, rosemary, broom and olive groves. Many waterfowl forage and winter in the area. There are also freshwater fish species such as carp, barbels, black bass and Iberian nase.    

This site, with areas of natural vegetation, is suitable for camping. It has facilities for the practice of water sports. The Green Route sports programme has been held here for several years.
