Berenguer Hydroelectric Power Station is a modernist industrial building, which is located in Bescanó. The part of the waterfall presents a curious decoration with figures of monsters and plants. The building is visible from the outside, from the road. The building was designed by the architect Joan Roca i Pinet.

It has an external perimeter of 28 m and a diameter of 9,3 m. Its useful surface is 50m². It had a gross estimated capacity of 550 m³, and it maintains the main door at the top. It is currently accessible via a signposted route that starts at the Sant Mateu de Vilanna Church.
