Vaulted pool at Gardens d'Alfabia in Mallorca

We went on holiday to the mountains in Mallorca a few months ago and while there visited some old Arabian-style gardens called Gardens d'Alfabia. They had this amazing vaulted cistern for storing water to irrigate the gardens... it sparked an idea. Perhaps at Amherst we could have a swimming pool like this. It'd be nice and cool in the heat and could be magical if we put shards of mirror and candles in the roof and walls.
