The water is so rich and full of life, it’s a joy to drink.
Some five thousand summers have passed since this spring water fell as a gentle rain upon this place.
Down through those long ages the water has moved through the heart of the mountain, seeping through crystal and mineral, feeling its way through tiny fissures and fault lines.
Then it emerges once more into times greatly changed.
Greeks, Romans, Phoenicians and Moors have won and lost kingdoms during the waters Stygian passage.
The remains of these empires are now only to be seen in scattered rock and tumbled mansions.
