Mas de la Serra Ice-Box


Catí

A circular storage tank with a diameter of 8.7 metres and 1 metre wide walls. To the east of the well, there’s a large 11.70 metre long platform supported by a wall that was used as an access and loading ramp. 


The well is in ruins and covered with vegetation, stones and debris. The current depth is 4 to 5.50 metres.

Access to the inside is through a tunnel staircase that descends from the 4.50 m long area that opens up to the well through a 2.40 m high opening covered by two slabs and a relieving arch.
