Alberobello

Alberobello is known as the 'Capital of the Trulli'. The trulli are a fascinating architectural feature of this area of Puglia. A trullo (singular) it is a small fairytale-like 14th century dwelling built from the local limestone, with dry-stone walls and a characteristic conical roof without mortar. Alberobello has been designated a UNESCO world heritage site because of its unique collection of some 1,500 trulli. Some of the trulli are now used for shops, restaurants, and lodgings. But many are still inhabited by locals, who are very friendly to visitors. As well as the two trulli zones, other attractions include the Basilica, Trullo Sovrano, the trullo Church of St Antony and the trulli museum. During the summer months Alberobello plays host to a number of festivals. These include a significant international folk festival, music festivals including classical, jazz and popular music, dance, theatre, street theatre and childrens events. There are also religious festivals with music performances and firework displays. Most of the performances are free and open-air. The town also has a vibrant passeggiata with summer strolls continuing beyond midnight.
