The town of Antas is surrounded by the mountain ranges of Filabres and Bedar. It is largely an agricultural town with almond and orange trees, lettuces and barley being commonly grown.
Antas has a number of prehistoric settlements. The remains of Neolithic and Bronze age man can be seen in various protected settlements around the town. In the same areas Roman and medieval remains have been found.
The Hermitage de la Virgen de la Cabeza is dedicated to the Patron Saint of Antas. It dates probably from the 16th century and lies close to the town. It was built in the shape of a vaulted Latin Cross and its bell tower was rebuilt at the end of the 18th century.
