This is a tiny piece of what Galicia (ny native region), has to offer.
It's the Ézaro waterfall (locally called Cascada do Ézaro), currently the only river that flows into the sea by a waterfall in Europe.
The river does not flow continuously, as the water is storaged on a nearby dam, to create electricity on a hydraulic powerplant (I'll leave a Google Maps link below).
I will keep on working on the process of making this files, and describe how did I make this one.
I haven't printed this yet, so if anybody decides to go for it, plase message me!
For any suggestions, also message me!
Thank you all!

For printing this model fast, I studied the options that CURA software provides. The print you can see on the pictures was printed at 4% infill (Cross pattern), and whith the option of INFILL SUPPORT, that´s really important, as it allows for the inner structure of the print to adapt to the form of the surface, whithout needing the printer to do as many bridges between infill lines, and it makes for a faster and much lighter print (see image).
I printed this at 30% scale, and moved it on Z axis to make the waterline of the river match whith the first 2 layers (it saves time, if you don´t want the square high base)
This is the view from Google Maps, you can see the dam (up to the right), and following the river down, you see the cascade, and the gobsmacking beach in which it ends
