The cistern dates back to the 1800s and is made of calcarenite blocks. It consists in an underground vaulted room for collecting water covered by a span-roof that emerges from the ground level, the mouth of the well for harvesting water and a basin for the animals.

The restoration was carried out using traditional techniques.
