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.
Made with two discs of buttery puff and stuffed with béchamel, mozzarella and just a touch of tomato, the rustico is generally eaten in Lecce and the Salento for breakfast or as an afternoon or late night snack.
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.
