'Quinta das Águas Férreas';
Concession: granting Charter published in the Government Gazette of October 25, 1913, N.º 250
In 1839 the 'Sociedade Farmacêutica Lusitânia' began a series of analyses of the springs on the outskirts of Lisbon: Casal de Barras; Vale de Camarões; Casais de Câmara; Quinta da Sadinho; Quinta dos Ribeiros; Quinta do Botão de Baixo; Cabeço de Montachique; Venda Seca e Vale de Lobos.
Lopes (1892) wrote about them: 'sprouts a railway water source, which was very advocated fifty years ago, when she made great use, there and in Lisbon, where it was transported in bottles'.
According to the report of Pego (1913) the waters were captured in a mine of 60m in length, carved in the rock, with a section of 2x0,8m, and conducted to a deposit 'where buds for a glass water fountain faucets'. Most likely this mine was located in strange granitic outcrop that appears behind the thermal resort of Quinta das Águas Férreas.

After that came to be exploited and marketed under the name 'Agua de Casais de Câmara', in the early decades of the 20th century.
