Alberobello

Pay attention to the striking of this tiny little village in the province of Bari!. Although not the only one in Italy with such buildings, it is definitely the most special of them all. Alberobello accumulates a large number of these houses that remain in excellent condition therefore the beautiful ensemble was declared in 1996World Heritage Site by UNESCO . These constructions are called trulli and they have this original circular shape with a conical roof made of stone.

When constructing them, the first intention was to build dwellings that were short-lived and easily removable to avoid taxation by the settlement. By contrast, ironically, trulli have stood for centuries. Actually, in many of these tiny houses are now installed restaurants and shops , and others are still inhabited by friendly locals who welcome the traveler as anyone.
