Tafi del Valle
Tafi del Valle is a village located between mountains so here you will be able to see a lot of amazing views! Here you will find delicious fruits so don’t leave without tasting some mangos or grapes!
What to do here?
15km (9miles) from Tafi you can find “El Mollar” another village situated on the shores of the “La Angostura” dock. Here you can find the menhir archaeological reserve.
I recommend walking around Tafi, you will find amazing landscapes full of green.
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 going for a hike 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.
