History

The discovery of the source

From the Duke of Vendôme, who ordered the road to Fuente en Segures to be opened so that his carriage could go along it, to the popularization of its mineral properties -medicinal, thanks to Doctor Puigvert- Agua de Benassal has been steeped in tradition, elegance and the know-how of yesterday.

More than a century ago, this liquid pleasure was extracted from the same natural source. Today, we can still allow ourselves the luxury of having Agua de Benassal on our table, giving it that touch of unparalleled distinction and elegance. Every year, thousands of holidaymakers flock to the Fuente en Segures spring to reap the benefits of its exceptional properties.
