Alberobello – Puglia

Alberobello is a small city of less than 11,000 people and it is famous for it’s trullos.  Trullos are scattered throughout this part of Puglia. The story behind trullo was to build a small home with only dry stone and no mortar so they could easily be reconfigured and taken down.  They were simply built this way to avoid paying taxes to the Spanish viceroy of the Kingdom of Naples.  There are about 1400 trullos in Alberobello and each is unique.  There also happened to be a small vintage Fiat 500 convention in the old town with over 100 cars ready for the onlooker inspection.
