Just 12 kilometres from the coastal town of Garrucha and surrounded by the Sierra de los Filabres mountain range, Antas sits amongst fields of almond and citrus trees. The town is well connected to the motorway and is less than an hours drive from Almería airport.
Today Antas is a typically Andalucían town - rich in culture and steeped in history, where the hustle and bustle of daily life takes places in the streets and the small plazas of the town. It has all the services and facilities that would be expected of a medium-sized town, including shops, banks and restaurants.
Dating back to the 16th century and built in the shape of a vaulted Latin cross, the hermitage of the Virgen de la Cabeza lies close to the town. It is an important monument to Antas and is dedicated to the patron saint of the town. Its bell-tower was re-built at the end of the 18th century.
