A Unesco Heritage Site since 1996, Alberobello is called the “Capital of Trulli” for its monumental historical center, with more than 1400 trulli, the unique and truly remarkable limestone dwellings built with a prehistoric mortarless construction technique still in use in southern Puglia. Made of roughly worked limestone boulders, the trulli have characteristic conical roofs built with slabs of corbelled stone. Small souvenir shops and craftsmen boutiques spread across the entire village add to a delicate sense of coziness, and let you experience what it really feels like to be an Apulian.
