"Aljibe de 62 metros cúbicos de capacidad, de tipología distinta a las demás construcciones de este tipo en el Albaicín. Es de planta casi cuadrada con gran bóveda de cañón trasdosada al exterior. En los años cuarenta se le añadiría el pilar con dos caños. El aspecto inusual de la bóveda, junto a la portada de ladrillo con hornacina, recuerda a formas propias de capillas y ermitas barrocas con fuerte impronta urbana, lo que induce a pensar que se trata de una obra cristiana, que remodela o sustituye a un aljibe hispanomusulmán perteneciente a la mezquita sobre la que se levantó, en el siglo XVI, la iglesia de San Nicolás."

"A cistern with a capacity of 62 cubic meters, a typology different from the other constructions of this type in the Albaicín. It has an almost square plan with a large barrel vault attached to the outside. In the 1940s, the pillar with two pipes would be added. The unusual appearance of the vault, together with the brick doorway with a niche, is reminiscent of forms typical of baroque chapels and hermitages with a strong urban imprint, which leads one to think that it is a Christian work, which remodels or replaces a cistern. Hispano-Muslim belonging to the mosque on which the church of San Nicolás was built in the 16th century."
