Full Description

Alberobello is famous around the world to be a particular town with Trulli, UNESCO World Heritage.

In the Province of Bari lies the Itria Valley, one of the most symbolic sites in the region, and home to the famous trulli habitations, standing out with their grey conical roofs from the geometric field pattern that characterizes the entire valley. Rocky strips of land alternate with long sweeps of white sand, with the crystal-clear waters of the sea adding the finishing touches to the beauty of the landscape. Alberobello, the location of these characteristic conical buildings that symbolize Apulia, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. According to some studies the trulli of Alberobello date back to the mid-fourteenth century; at the time it was common to demolish and rebuild uneven buildings rather than repair them. The dry construction, without mortar, seems to have been imposed on the peasants in the fifteenth century by the Counts of Conversano, to escape an edict of the Kingdom of Naples which imposed tribute to every new urban settlement. These buildings were therefore precarious buildings, easy to demolish and not taxable. In truth the trulli are far from being precarious: the internal structure, although lacking support and connection elements, in fact has an extraordinary static capacity. Visiting the beautiful Alberobello is like taking a trip to a timeless country. The ancient part of the town is called Monumentale Rione Monti where you will admire more then 1000 Trulli.
