Carved stone pinnacles atop refurbished trullo cones, in Alberobello
Trullo houses in Alberobello, Puglia
Panoramic view of Alberobello with trulli roofs
Alberobello is a small town in the province of Bari, Puglia (Apulia), and is famous for its unique trulli buildings.
A trullo is a traditional Apulian dry stone hut with a conical roof. Their style of construction is specific to the Itria Valley, in the Murge area of the Italian region of Apulia. The Trulli of Alberobello have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1996.
Italy's magic has been shifting over the last five years. While the Tuscan charm still attracts large volumes of tourists, slowly and steadily, the welcoming southern Italian hospitality is drawing more and more visitors to its region.
We are in the process of purchasing a 3 cone Trullo in Puglia, which needs extensive restoration. Total internal floor area is circa 60sqm. I have read alot about the process involves, re "geometra" and skilled builders.
