The Trulli of Alberobello
Alberobello is a small town in Apulia, an Italian region situated at the South East of the Apennine peninsula. This town is famous for its unusual houses called trulli.
The dwellings are really unique and extraordinary: you won't be able to find something similar in other places of the planet. All these houses have been designated the world heritage by UNESCO in 1996.
There are approximately 15 hundred houses in the town and the oldest ones were built about 5 hundred years ago.
The houses are unique not only due to the exterior, but also to the unusual way of their construction. Trulli dwellings are made of stone blocks without any binders such as clay or concrete and they can be easily destroyed by pulling out a special "key" stone located at the base of the roof.
Actually, we should be grateful to the Spanish for the appearance of these houses. The thing is that during Spanish dominance over this region, local people were allowed to erect only houses that could be easily torn down.
Tourists visiting trulli 'Sovrano' may see the inside of the dwelling for 1.5 euro.
