I think this is a water tower. I'm not sure though. Couldn't find any info about it, only a couple nice pics. This is the Interlagos circuit, in Sao Paulo, Brazil:

Catalana de Gas water tower, Barcelona (1906). This 45m tall Art Nouveau tower (Modernisme in catalan), located in Barceloneta, was part of the big factory that produced gas for the city.

Since the demolition of the factory in 1989, this tower is now found in the middle of Barceloneta Park, quite close to the beachfront.

Osijek - Croatia

Oldest one in my city, built in 18th century, and was first modern water supply in the city. Many would never say it's actually a water tower, but that it's rather some kind of defense tower. Original machines still exist inside, but are in bad condition, along with entire interior.

There at least 3 other water towers in the city, but I can't seem to find any photos.
