A water cistern. Typically made of cypress.
Used to collect rain water as it progressed from the rooftops of the house, into the gutters, then into the cistern.
As you can see it was then "plumbed" into the house.
My grand parents had one in their back yard; but the water was drained near the bottom by means of a spigot (or faucet) into a bucket. They used the rainwater for their garden during the dry season.
4 years ago. Edited 4 years ago.
