    Stagno is a small village within the municipality of Camugnano (6km). It is a small XV century village gathered around the church; in the past, in Stagno there was a powerful castle.
    The castle of Stagno was contended in fierce fights between Pistoia and Bologna; the building was surrounded by large walls and there was only a doorway, which was protected by a tower. Inside the walls there was a cistern for the collection of rain and some small buildings. Until 1972 the castle could be reached only by walk. Stagno still preserves its historical architectural features, such as sandstone roofs, doorways and windows, arcades and inscriptions on stones, which lead the visitors on a journey though the past.
    The church of Stagno is dedicated to San Michele Arcangelo and was built in 1570 as an oratory; it then became a parish in 1840. It has two very characteristic staircases which leads to two different entrances to the building, one for men and one for women.
    Chiapporato is another very interesting historical village, with buildings dating from the XVII to the XIX century; it is gathered on a mountain (Monte Calvi) and can be reached only by foot. The architecture of Chiapporato is typical of an historical period when buildings were deeply respectful of the natural environment; its roofs, lanes, kilns and inscriptions are very fascinating.
    Worthy of mention are also the buildings of Casa Guidotti, nearby Carpineta, where can be seen a fine carved window with the inscription 'Berto de' Jelmo fè a dì VII de mazo MCCCCXXV'; the inscription testifies that the Elmi family, originally from Como, had settled in the area of Carpineta.
    In Trasserra there is an ancient church dedicated to San Giovanni Battista; it was rebuilt in the XVIII century and it houses some fine XVIII century canvases and a Madonna statue.
    In the tiny XVIII century village Molino delle Mogne can be seen a church dedicated to San Michele Arcangelo.
