Minori were flagellated from a terrible storm in April 11th 1597 which, as the historical reports says, “were so terrible, that all the walls of the city with the doors were taken away. It (the water) reached the door of the greater church entirely covering the public public square and part of the gardens”.
In 1656 population of Minori practically was decimated from the plague, died the third part of the inhabitants.
The rebirth of the village happened thanks to the production of the lemons during the '800 and with the birth of the modern tourism in the XX century.
