    A great, huge barrel ... Amazing what was built in the past

    Impressive big barrel. When you stand next to it you feel very tiny.
    The barrel has a capacity of 219,000 liters.

    - On top of the barrel there is a dance floor designed for 6 couples. 💃🕺- The barrel was used to collect taxes in the form of wine (if someone did not have enough money, he could pay with wine). That was a pretty mixed brew 😅- Children were sent into the barrel to clean it because the opening is very small. They were tied to a rope so that they could be pulled out as soon as they had too much of the alcoholic gases 😬- There was an even bigger barrel that was built at the same time, but it broke apart after a few years.

    In this huge barrel, taxes would be collected in the form of wine if someone had no money to wage them
