Travel Tips for Alberobello

outwitting Ferdinand I of Aragón?

by sim1


The story I like best is the one suggestion is that the origin of the trulli had to do with outwitting Ferdinand I of Aragón. This king had prohibited the Apulians from building permanent dwellings because he wanted to be able to move the labor force around as he chose. The clever Apulians thus constructed houses that could be dismantled when they spotted the king's agents.

Alberobello

by Nina.M.

Alberobello is a small town and comune in the province of Bari, in Puglia, Italy. It has about 10,000 inhabitants and is famous for trulli constructions.

Alberobello has special status internationally - designated a UNESCO world heritage site - because its collection of some 1,500 trulli in an urban environment is unique.

Alberobello is under an hour's drive from either Bari or Brindisi airport.
There is a good number of restaurants in the tourist centre of the town,enoteka sells local goods such as cheese, sausage, spreads, cookies.

A trullo is a traditional Apulian stone dwelling with a conical roof. The style of construction is specific to the Murge area of the Italian region of Apulia (in Italian Puglia). They may be found in the towns of Alberobello, Locorotondo, Fasano, Cisternino and Martina Franca.
Trulli were generally constructed as dwellings or storehouses. Traditionally they were built without any cement or mortar. This style of construction is also prevalent in the surrounding countryside where most of the fields are separated by dry-stone walls.
