13-Chocolate Cave

Old ice pit

Old Refrigerator or ice pit from the XVI-XVII centuries was built with a vault of granite ashlar with a half-point arch.

Due to its conditions it is always cold and humid, so the cave was the ideal place to conserve ice, following the ancient technique of conserving snow compacted between layers of straw to preserve it until summer.

It was subsequently used as a cocoa store for Suja’s family Chocolate Factory that was active until the middle of the XX century.

This cave is located in Plaza de las Nieves, called in reference to the cave and another nearby snow pit.

It has been recently rehabilitated and conditioned as an event and activities room for a reduced capacity of a maximum of 30 people.
