En Miguel Ice House

Located at the boundary between Alfafara and Bocairent, this is one of the most monumental snow deposits. In fact, it’s characterized by the eight buttresses built around a large octagonal peripheral wall. It has circular floor shape, two openings with carefully finished stone frames and three manholes located at different levels.

It has a diameter of 14.5 m and has an average height of 10.2 m, therefore, the snow storage capacity is estimated at 1.700 m3. Among the details that you can see, in the southern wall we highlight a stone ring to tie the horses used for transportation. Also, you can see a chimney that rises above what must have been the refuge of the ice dealers.
