Serra da Graciosa

The water is named after the Serra da Graciosa which is a section of the Serra da Mar chain of mountains that runs along the southeastern Atlantic coast. The source is located at the base of this range and is a very popular tourism destination. The Estrada da Graciosa is a road from colonial times connecting the state capital to the Atlantic shore.

Founded in 2001, the company is located in Morretes, Parana State - Brazil, approximately 50km from Curitiba (the state’s capital). The city has an area of 620 sq km and more than 90% of it is a protected ecological sanctuary that belongs to Serra do Mar and is covered by the Atlantic rainforest, where the precipitation (2.500 to 3.000 mm per year) is larger than in the Amazon. These precipitations result in a high quality mineral water that penetrates through granite formations reaching the extraction point after 50 years of filtration and mineralization process that creates a pure and rich in keys minerals.

Therapeutic use of mud, mineral waters and steam is called crenotherapy and a study performed by Dr. Marcos Untura Filho, one of the best authorities on this matter found special properties in the water.
