Location

The springs are situated within the limits of Mondariz and Mondariz Balneario (Pontevedra) municipalities, and set within the hydrographic basin of the river Tea, which is a tributary of the Miño river. The springs are located near the place where the streams Xabriña and Aboal converge.

The granitic substratum through which the waters flow determine their characteristic composition and provide them with certain intrinsic features that are beneficial for health. Isotope analysis show that they are very old waters (deeply underground), whose residence times in the aquifer (hydraulic residence) oscillates between 60 and 150 years. They flow to the surface at a constant temperature of 16.5º C throughout the year.

The traditional richness of the springs has been protected by erecting a mining protection perimeter, construed as a place where human activity ought to be planned and controlled in order to prevent deterioration of the quality of the springs and/or its flows. To that end, Mondariz has over the past years invested a part of its profits into hydrologic research of this environment, through collaboration with the most prestigious professionals from the sector.

This Spa environment is situated on the banks of the river Tea, which has been considered by the European Commission as a special conservation site for preserving values under the Natura Networking Programme, and contributes towards establishing a positive synergy for protecting the aquifer.
