We were told that in the late 1800's the cave was once used to store ice. The cave aka refrigerator hill, was at that time perfect for storing ice. The gate was put up to keep it from being used for unsavory things and as a urinal.

We just drove by and got out for a bit. It's pretty neat and i suggest getting one of the locals to tell you about it.

It's a weird little spot visible from the malecon. It was locked up so you couldn't go inside, if you wanted to.

Take a pix at the entrance and go. Nothing to see here. Rumors of the devil living in it. Close to the water.

I have seen this thing for years and I thought it was kind of spooky when I first saw it, there was a different sign on it with a pitchfork. I like the cool ironwork always and still think it is a spooky, creepy cave. Cuidado el Diablo!!!!! Jeff Lee/ Kai Lee

We were told that ice use to come on ships and it was stored in the cave. Another story is that it was used to store ammunition during the war. Our grand children think it's cool and that's what counts.

Only saw it from our Tour Bus as it is barred for people to go into for safety reasons of course! Not really a spectacular thing to see otherwise.

Husband, son, and I saw this gate on our quick tour of Mazatlan. We didn't get much information about it, but we saw it. We toured in a vehicle called pumeria. It is like a mix of a Volkswagon and golf cart.

We saw people on the other side of the road taking pictures and didn't understand why until we walked a little further up and saw the gate. Got the story from our guide and found it an interesting stop on the walk.
