In 1570, a catastrophic earthquake forced the inhabitants of the center, named Pandora, to abandon their homes and move to safer areas nearby. It was therefore founded a new group which was given the name Careri.


The news about the town date back to the late sixteenth century and report the purchase of the village by Sigismund Loffredo, Marquis of Bovalino. In 1570, a catastrophic earthquake forced the inhabitants of the center, named Pandora, to abandon their homes and move to safer areas nearby. It was therefore founded a new group which was given the name Careri. According to historical information it derives from the Latin word "care" that means "fail" to emphasize the poverty besetting the population. After the destruction of Pandora a group of farmers, having their wives pregnant, failed to follow the group of survivors, and then found refuge in a nearby hill. Awaiting the birth of children, the peasants began to appreciate the place for its woodland and agricultural and decided to turn their temporary huts in brick houses so giving rise to a new center, which they called Natile to remember the birth of children. Here the prince of Cariati, Charles Spinelli, built a castle of which only ruins remain today. The new village later became the only village of Careri became an independent town in 1836. Pandora's ancient center ruins that remain today, now completely abandoned. The village was again threatened by Natile dall'alluvione 1951. Despite the incipient landslides only part of the population agreed to be transferred to the new center of New Natile, the rhyming remained in their homes of origin. A Careri in the past it seems there are ten churches, he is currently only one in the town center, the others are somewhat reduced in a state of ruins. E 'remained visible but still a construction wall of the sixteenth century recognized as the "Baths of Stranuso" designed to collect the anonymous source. This, despite the therapeutic properties of its waters, was never used to serve as a thermal plant. The home of Careri center are located on a ridge that divides into two breaks: one closer to the houses are arranged in a linear path that leads to the central winding to the end of the ridge, even the fringe on the other building fabric presents a more compact core, downstream, which continues with a linear ordered along two roads. Behind you is a fragmented nucleus that ends with the square of the Church that connects the two fringes.
