The Alberobello area:
Alberobello literally means 'beautiful tree' and this is where many of the distinctive 'trulli': Whitewashed cones made of stones, at the top there is a decoration that has some rebellious or magical meaning.The famous white beehive shaped houses of Puglia have come to symbolise the region. In Alberobello there are over a thousand of them.
Their shape is, in part, due to the economic conditions: at the time it was forbidden to build without the permission of the king Ferdinand I of Aragon, he declared that peasants were not allowed to build permanent homes. Since the stones had no cement, in theory they could be taken apart and moved.
What to see:
- The historical centre with the especially typical quarters called 'Aia Piccola' and “Monti”, wholly composed of 'trulli' united to groups and lined up along precipitous and circuitous lanes that climb the hill.

- The Trullo sovrano, the only one with two floors, built in the 18th century locates in a small square behind the Mother Church.
