Declaration of Public Utility
THE STARTING POINT
The history of the brand starts with the Declaration of Public Utility of the spring waters. The bottling of the waters that flow from the Gándara and Troncoso natural springs, together with the transformation of the setting in which the spa is located, transformed the town into a place of pilgrimage for the spa-goers of the day.
After more than thirty years being sold as mineral-medicinal waters in pharmacies, the waters began to be sold commercially under the Aguas de Mondariz trademark.
A JEWEL IN THE HEART OF GALICIA
During the previous year, Enrique Peinador Lines took over the company from his father Enrique Peinador Vela. Following the consolidation of the spa and the construction of the Gran Hotel, the Peinador family embarked on more ambitious projects aimed at converting Mondariz into a model centre for health and leisure. The building of the tramline between Mondariz and Vigo, or the work of architect Antonio Palacios on the hotel-sanatorium, ‘La Baranda’ building and our iconic Gándara pavilion, created an idyllic setting and a new space for the spa and town.
