Agricultural hut embedded in the margin of irregular plant, with cover of rows of slabs, called "the Tomb" by its similarity.

"It is one of the oldest false vaulted huts we know of, from the first half of the 18th century or even the end of the 17th century. It is a false vault covered by a row of slabs and with a stone curtain on the door in order to reduce its light." (Jenar Fèlix - Alberes)
