Fornet de neu Agullent

A small well, recently restored and visitable, is the testimony of an economic activity already extinct: the snow trade. Topped with a vault, it is listed as one of the 137 caves in the Southern Betic sector. Its activity was strictly local, without intervening in large-scale marketing. According to Agullent’s official chronicler, the oven was already built at the end of the 16th century, as the municipal documentation includes Ontinyent’s request to Agullent for snow, as a therapeutic remedy for the plague epidemic they were suffering from.
