"Aljibe ubicado bajo la placeta con el mismo nombre que quizás tuvo relación con la antigua mezquita de la Buenanueva (Yami al-Busura), y en cuyo entorno existió un pequeño cementerio islámico. Es un depósito de tamaño considerable, con 50 metros cúbicos de capacidad, alimentado de un ramal de la acequia de Aynadamar. Presenta una estructura bastante compleja: dos naves paralelas de distinta anchura, con nichos en los extremos y dos arcos de separación entre ellas. La nave más grande está cubierta por una bóveda de arista de medio punto y la menor por bóveda de aristas apuntada. Sobre la bóveda mayor se ubica la boca del aljibe, en un volumen prismático levantado sobre la plaza, de remate abovedado, rehecho a principios del siglo XX."

"Citer located under the square with the same name that perhaps had a relationship with the old mosque of the Buenanueva (Yami al-Busura), and in whose surroundings there was a small Islamic cemetery. It is a deposit of considerable size, with 50 cubic meters of capacity, fed by a branch of the Aynadamar irrigation canal. It presents a fairly complex structure: two parallel naves of different widths, with niches at the ends and two arches separating them. The largest nave is covered by a groin vault of "half-point and the smaller one by a pointed groin vault. Above the larger vault is the mouth of the cistern, in a prismatic volume raised over the plaza, with a vaulted finish, redone at the beginning of the 20th century."
