A trullo rarely stands alone. Most of the time, you find them bundled together, their small cone-shaped roofs pointing to the sky. One is kitchen, another bedroom, a third may be bathroom. And so on. That’s why the world only knows them by their plural pronoun: The Trulli. Discover the magical trulli of Alberobello and Puglia:
But in Puglia - and especially in the area around Alberobello and Locorotondo - they have attained a unique characteristic:
covered with white lime plaster and with a pinnacle at the top, like a small exclamation point!
The village of Alberobello might be somewhat of a Trulli Disneyland, with nothing but tourists that flock the cobblestone streets and marvel at the cute white cottages.
But it's truly a unique and ample collection of these hobbit-like dwellings.
