    Sparvo is a small village on the hills (600mt) nearby where the Setta river flows. Sparvo was first mentioned in a document in 1164; its parish is dedicated to San Michele Arcangelo and was founded in the XVII century, but restored two centuries after.
    Nearby Sparvo there is a very interesting XVII century rural building known as Badia Nuova; it has an oratory (1622) with very fine architectural features (especially the roof,  the door with the architrave and the window in the middle of the facade) and with a stone altar which is completely carved.
    In the same area lies the small village of Prediera di Sopra, a group of buildings with interesting architectural features dating from the first half of the XVI century.
    Worthy of mention is also the rural house Ca' Rossa, which has a XIX century stable with sandstone columns and vaults in the shape of small domes.
