Centre of Framura’s life, Setta still maintains the medieval architectural pattern, evidenced by the presence of several mullioned windows (14th c.). This hamlet preserves a Genoese watchtower (15th c.), built to protect from Saracens when The Superb (Genova) had already taken control of the Eastern coast.

Near the tower there is the chapel of San Rocco, whose facade is decorated with tempera; it presents architectural elements of neo-classical style (second half of the ‘700). Inside, it houses the Madonna with Child between San Rocco and San Nicola (12th – 18th c.)

Very impressive is the old courtyard in Casella, reachable through a lovely path among the stone walls of the gardens.
