Trulli di Alberobello
The trulli (from the greek late τρούλος trúlos, ancient greek τροῦλλος Trullos, “dome”) is the ancient stone buildings, conical dry stone construction, typical and unique proto-historic origins of the center-southern Puglia. Despite areas of development of the trulli, be found around archeologicidi prehistoric times, or foundations of stone huts dating back to the Bronze Age, there are no particularly ancient trulli: this is justified by the fact that rather than undertake the repair of the same in the case of instability, it is preferred to tear it down and rebuild it, for economic reasons, reusing the material. The oldest trulli of which we trace remains today, were built in the sixteenth century near the plateau of the Apulian Murgia.
The Trulli of Alberobello has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
