What else can you do here?

5km (3miles) from Tafi  on the route 307 you will find an Ecological farm where the couple that lives here will show  you their way of living, you can also buy organic homemade products.

I recommend to go trekking to the mountain next to Tafi known for having the Christian cross at the top. From here you’ll see Tafi, the dock, and El Mollar.
