Alberobello is well known for its trulli, stone buildings with conicl roofs, unique to Puglia. The town has over 1000 trulli spread over two hills and is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The town provides an exceptional example of prehistoric construction techniques that have survived intact and function in the modern world.
Alberobello is a major tourist attraction with lots of little shops selling local wines, olive oils and souvenirs in its pedestrianised streets. There are plenty of restaurants and several cafes, bars and ‘trattorie’ offering al fresco dining.
It is well worth visiting Alberobello during your stay in Puglia. It takes about 40 mins by car to reach Alberobello from Trulli Talily.
For centuries it was a strategic provenience, colonized, invaded and conquered by just about every major power of the day…
