The town possesses the remains of a magnificent castle, the Château d'Anet, built in the middle of the 16th century by Henry II for Diana of Poitiers. Near it is the plain of Ivry-la-Bataille, where Henry IV defeated the armies of the Catholic League in 1590.[2]

The opening scene of the James Bond film "Thunderball" was shot in Anet.
