A special place of interest in Anna is the Palace of the Counts of Cervelló. This palace dates from the seventeenth century; however the first evidence of the construction goes back to the year 1244. In the early seventeenth century, the palace was constructed from the remains of a castle. Since then the palace has been restored many times, but people have tried to keep the same style. The palace of the Counts of Cervelló is currently an amazing attraction that offers a lot of options to its visitors. You can find an ethnological museum here that counts with antique utensils of the craftsmen of Anna. In addition, you can visit the water museum, which is located in the cisterns of the palace. Throughout history, the ground water pipes gave wealth to Anna. The patio and the Arabic area are embellished with colorful ceramic tiles. The decorations and the stucco date back from the twelfth century. Nowadays, different celebrations take place there, such as weddings. In the rooms of Borja and Cervelló, people are transported back to the seventeenth century.
