Anento castle is a rock castle of small dimensions, due to the fact that the surface of the hill where it is located measures around 40 metres in axis. The eastern side of the castle, where the moat is also located, is the best preserved.
The town is famous for its sausages derived from the slaughter of pigs, some of which are very popular in the surrounding area, such as fardeles, made from spiced pork liver and lean pork. As you would expect, roast veal is another of the most popular dishes to eat in Anento.
- It is worth mentioning the honey that is made here, flavoured with plants from the surrounding area; the remains of an old beehive can still be visited in the streets of the town.
- The local bread oven. It is located inside a house that is currently used as a multi-purpose centre (or teleclub). The oven is embedded in one of the walls of the building. It was used to bake the community’s bread. Nowadays, they are only lit for festivities, when typical local gastronomic products are made.
- Several hemispherical stone constructions can be found in the village, also known as the iceboxes. During the winter months, the village used to collect ice and store it for domestic use or sale in the following months, while it lasted. In summer, it was used to store fresh food and drink, which the harvesters took to the fields to work for the duration of the day.
