"And that green glittering in the sun trees sea stretch the strangest houses that you can imagine, their apexes in the sky. This round also built houses that are trulli, dry stone, sometimes they are individually, sometimes several trulli are connected to a house complex .... Most of them are scattered across the landscape ... Only in Alberobello a closed village of trulli is built .... The other villages and small towns are all built in a different manner and are part of the charm Fullest and fantasy Richest what spontaneous architecture has produced in Italy. "They were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site Explained!
Originally were the trulli field huts, stables, warehouses and homes of the peasants before many have been abandoned to decay. In recent decades they have been discovered for tourism and increasingly elaborately restored. Today, they inspire us with their unconventional and practical, historically influenced design and its high level of comfort: because of its immensely thick walls as they are pleasant temperature in the transition period in the summer!
Inside, they form four square rooms with high vaulted ceilings while outside each room is topped by a cone, inside they are usually limed white as snow, show some nice Tuffmauerwerk.
