Trulli di Alberobello - strange houses in Italy

In the south of Italy, in the tourist undiscovered area – Puglia, you can find thousands of wonderful houses. At first glance they resemble the seat of fairy elves or Tolkien’s hobbits, they are called Trulli. The majority of those stone structures can be found in the town of Alberobello.

Although the Apulian countryside is literally dotted with trulli buildings, most fairy houses can be found in the town of Alberobello, which was, due to its unique structures, included in UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. Hundreds of trulli houses are stuck next to each other in the winding streets. They survived in an almost authentic state, for which we can thank to the Italian conservationists. Already in 1909, Trulli was declared as a protected monument.

Currently fairy houses serve mainly to tourists – as small shops and pubs, but sometimes as a romantic and rather expensive little hotels and guesthouses. Renting the renovated and modernly equipped Trulli for two to four people outside the main season cost €600 a week (during the holidays up to €800).

Lots of houses are also on sale, at the lower prices. However, in the state before the general reconstruction.
