One of the common goals shared by the underwater neutrino telescope ANTARES, running in its complete configuration since 2008, and the next-generation experiment KM3NeT, currently being deployed in the Mediterranean Sea, is the detection of neutrinos of astrophysical origin and the discovery of their sources. 
Neutrinos, being neutral and weakly-interacting, can travel long distances without being deflected by cosmic magnetic fields and can escape dense environments. As they are expected to be a unique tracer of hadronic acceleration, their detection will make it possible to unequivocally identify the origin of cosmic rays, which is yet an unresolved puzzle over 100 years after their discovery. 
In this talk, an overview of the main results achieved by ANTARES and the prospects for KM3NeT in the context of neutrino astronomy will be given.
