Founded in 1800 in honor of the King of Spain Carlos IV, this is how the commune of San Pablo was born, in Ñuble, located in the Bio Bio Region. It is presumed that before the arrival of the Spaniards this was an uninhabited territory and that after the visit directed by Diego de Almagro in 1536 these lands would be inhabited by a group of Mapuches belonging to the Itihue ethnic group. Already by 1769, after being abandoned territory, Chief Juan Reiman settled and installed the parish of San Carlos in the place where the commune is now. For that moment the place begins to recognize itself as San Carlos de Itihue.
Since then this commune has been the birthplace of several famous Chilean personalities such as Hernán Gazmuri and Violeta Parra, one of the greatest exponents of austral folklore, hence the one that was their house located in El Roble was declared a National Monument in 1992, however, It has been abandoned. Recently, work is being done on the creation of the Violeta Parra House Museum with the collaboration of the Municipality of San Carlos, the Violeta Parra Foundation of Santiago and the artist's relatives.
