It dates from the 19th century and is the third most important in the district. It is also the longest of those supported by pillars. It is large in size, about 25 metres, and is wholly built from granite stone masonry. On one of its sides, there is another construction in the same material, through rectangular in shape, erected on a pedestal and which is accessed via a flight of stone steps - this was deovoted to airing grain.
