In the still uncontaminated territory of Taipana, it is not unusual to find splendid natural corners, among which the Slokot and Pod Malen waterfalls in the short flow of Torrent Gorgons, the sources of Torrent Cornappo with the impressive Certenja waterfall, those of Rio Bianco, the beech grooves of Gran Monte at Monteaperta, the woods of broad-leaved trees near the Ponte della Capra at Prossenicco, a rural neighbourhood with remarkable examples of typical architecture, as the so-called “casa nera” (black house), with the ancient hearth on the floor. Buildings restored according to the original architecture (often with external balconies) may be seen at Taipana, Platischis and Debelllis (where also an interesting old mill stands). In the small church of SS. Trinità at Monteaperta, fragments of frescoes by G.P. Thanner (ca. 1520) are still preserved. A nearby rock, according to a legend, carries the footprint of the Virgin.
