The mineral water of Spa was already famous in earlier times. The wealthy came to the town of Spa from far and wide to experience the healing effects of the water. Not only the drinking of the mineral water became popular, also the cures in it took flight. Well-known names such as Tsar Peter the Great, Victor Hugo, Casanova and the Belgian queen Marie-Henriette were regularly guests in Spa. The word Spa is incidentally derived from the Latin 'spargere', which means welling up.
The mineral water of Spa has a unique, pure and constant composition that is due to the special location of the Spa basin, a protected natural area in the heart of the Belgian Ardennes, in the Fens. This area has been protected since the end of the 18th century and Spa has now expanded the protection zone to more than 13,000 hectares (130 km2). There is no industry in the area and special measures have been taken so that the soil is not contaminated. The protected nature area that includes all Spa resources is one of the largest protected areas in Europe. The rainwater is filtered through a rich layer of peat and then seeps through the 500 million year old rocks. The hard rocks are not porous and low in minerals. As a result, they filter the water without releasing mineral salts. It can take up to 50 years for the water to reach the springs.
Water and water
All kinds of water are alike in a glass. Yet there are important differences between tap water, spring water and natural mineral water when it comes to origin, purity and composition:
Tap water can come from various sources: surface water (lakes, reefs, etc.) and also from groundwater. Filtering and treatment is always required to make water safe for consumption.
Spring water is raw water from a recognized, underground source. In contrast to mineral water, spring water does not necessarily have to have a constant mineral composition; this can therefore fluctuate.
Natural mineral water is water that comes directly from nature and is extracted from deep-lying, underground sources. It contains, as the name suggests, naturally present minerals. Natural mineral water is not treated. That is not necessary because it is 100% naturally pure.
