Alberobello

Alberobello

The old town centre, which has also been awarded the Touring Club of Italy’s Orange Flag, is entirely composed of trulli, traditional drystone huts whitened with quicklime and capped by conical bare-stone roofs. Crosses, pierced hearts, and zodiac signs decorate the roofs, maintaining the air of mystery that surrounds the trulli. This monumental Trulli Village of the 1400’s is a Unesco Word Heritage site since 1996 and it is divided into two districts: Monti and Aia Piccola.

Moving through the narrow, winding streets you can reach the Trullo Sovrano, the largest Trullo which stages performances and concerts.

Casa Pezzolla, composed by 15 interrelated trulli, houses Museo del Territorio with exhibits, tools and examples of local traditions of these places.
