What to do in Anna
In the town centre of Anna it is essential that you visit the Palace of the Counts of Cervelló, the current home of both the ethnological museum and the museum dedicated to water. This castle-palace has Almohad origins in the 12th century, being used by different Christian noble families from the 13th century onwards.
You will love its courtyard and its Arab decorated rooms, and the museum collections. You can't miss it! And on the urban route you must necessarily include its hermitage of the Santísimo Cristo de la Providencia.
In Anna it is a pleasure to visit the numerous urban fountains, such as those of Santa María or the Balsa de Abajo, without forgetting the washing place in the Plaza de la Alameda, and to walk along the Camino de las Fuentes, with a beautiful garden and roundabout decorated with tiles. In the fields around the municipality there is also a succession of irrigation channels and all kinds of constructions related to water, the true hallmark of Anna's identity.
The Albufera or Lake Anna is a perfect place to escape to for a family picnic and its surroundings hide all sorts of surprises, as you can start a route from pool to pool, or from waterfall to waterfall! You can visit the gorges of Gaspar, Fuente Negra or Fuente de Marzo. Gorgo de la Escalera is one of the best known and most photogenic, with a continental beach that should not be missed.
In November, one of Anna's most endearing festivals is celebrated, the Catalineta, in which traditionally schoolchildren and teachers visit Fuente Negra and taste the typical casseroles. Start preparing your getaway to Anna and be surprised by all that you will find!
