is one unique and interesting town! The entire town of Alberobello
and the Trulli district are worth the visit.
Youve never seen anything like it! Alberobello is
the Trulli capital. Trulli are whitewashed stone buildings,
circular in shape with conical lids made of limestone (think
like an igloo) no mortar is used in these buildings.
Quite often you will see symbols painted in white on the top
of the cones. The tops of the cones have holes for smoke to
escape (think teepee). I had the opportunity to visit a friend
who lived on the main Trulli street (Zona Monumentale) when
I was here, the interior was just as youd think
whitewashed walls, each cone representing a room, warm and charming
the houses have several to many cones/rooms. The people
in the area are very proud of this architecture and you will
see it repeated throughout Puglia. I also had the good fortune
to meet a person who allowed me to go to the top of his Trulli
and look out over the entire city what a great picture
what a great sight! The Trulli Sovrano is unique
among Trulli as it is the only two-storey trullo. It is located
at Piazza Sacramento (follow the signs). Check out the
Trulli church SantAntonio. Thursday is
market day in Alberobello.
