Trulli are super cute

Alberobello is in fact an example of a medieval tax dodge. The king of Naples set a tithe to be payed for new settlements, so the local nobleman Gian Girolamo required his tenants to use a dry stone wall technique without mortar. These houses were classified as temporary shelters and therefore the payment could be avoided. The resulting clusters of circular cone topped trulli are super cute. There is even a trullo sovrano with two stories built for a local priest. Many have now been converted into shops, restaurants and B&B's.
In the center of town there is a small trullo bar called the Belvedere from the terrace you can take excellent photos of the roofs of the trulli, however while you are there pop in for a coffee and a chat with the owner. He is really interesting to talk to and speaks good English as a result of working in Yorkshire in the 60's.

Trullis and more

There is no doubt that the main attraction of Alberobello are the "Trullis". These are typical houses featuring white conical concentric rings, formed by dry limestone. You can also visit the Basilica dei Santi Medici Cosma e Damiano (more interesting outside than inside) and the House of Amore.

A fairytale vibe

It's in Puglia, about 466km (around 6 hours) south of Rome and about 60km (1hr.)from Bari. You can leave your car at the entrance to the town and explore the town on foot in one day. The best and most famous part of this town are the small homes, all circular, with cone-shaped roofs and painted white. Some date back centuries and they give the town a fairytale vibe.

The prices, although they have gone up in recent years, are still well below the standard in most Italian tourist areas. The locals are friendly and open and there are lots of stores that have products typical of the area (olive oil, olive wood handicrafts, liqueurs, and almond products).

Like everywhere in Puglia, the "antipasti" (appetizers) are quite recommendable whether they come from land or sea. All in all, it's a place you can't miss if you're in the area for work or pleasure, or a good place to escape for a few days and disconnect in one of the "Trulli."

The trulli of alberobello

The history of Alberobello back to the second half of the sixteenth century. This small fee then under the control of the Acquaviva family, Counts of Conversano, saw the arrival of peasants who cultivated the land. According to legend, the counts allowed the settlers to build homes dry stone (without mortar) to disassemble easily in case of royal inspection. Indeed, Ferdinand of Aragon, the first in its Prammatica of Baronibus, required the payment of a fee in the event of building permanent housing. According to the words of our guide history trulli is much more dramatic, that Counts Acquaviva serfs forced to live in these precarious structures, similar to animal shelters or refuges.Les peasants lived in underground, to thank you for Acquaviva, they are also included in the tyrants abusing their powers. It is said that one of them, the cruel Gian Girolamo II, nicknamed the Blind of Puglia, exercised "Ius primae noctis" the droit de seigneur (even the boys) Those who rebelled were tortured more than three hundred years later, taking advantage of the arrival of King Ferdinand IV of Bourbon in Taranto, several community representatives take their courage to ask the king to overcome the feudal yoke.

Les trulli d'alberobello

L'histoire d'Alberobello remonte à la seconde moitié du XVIe siècle. Ce petit fief alors sous le contrôle de la famille Acquaviva, comtes de Conversano, vit arriver des paysans qui cultivèrent la terre.
Selon la légende, les comtes permirent aux colons de construire des habitations en pierres sèches (sans mortier) afin de les démonter facilement en cas d'inspection royale. En effet, Ferdinand 1er d'Aragon, dans sa Prammatica de Baronibus, exigeait le paiement d'une taxe en cas d'édification d'habitations fixes.
D’après les dires,de notre guide l’histoire des trulli est bien plus dramatique, à savoir que les comtes Acquaviva obligèrent leurs serfs à vivre dans ces constructions précaires, semblables à des abris pour animaux ou à des refuges.Les paysans vivaient dans la clandestinité, à la merci des Acquaviva, ceux-ci se comportaient d’ail­leurs en tyrans, abusant de leurs prérogatives. On raconte que l’un d’eux, le cruel Gian Girolamo II, surnommé le Borgne des Pouilles, exerçait le “Ius primae noctis”, le droit de cuissage, (même sur les garçons) Ceux qui se rebellèrent furent torturés Plus de trois cents ans plus tard, profitant de la venue du roi Ferdinand IV des Bourbons à Tarente, plusieurs représentants de la communauté prendront leur courage à deux mains pour demander au souverain de les affranchir du joug féodal.

I've been to Alberobello few years ago, in October, excellent climate and the ideal time to visit everything calmly and without the summer crowds. Wandering the streets seems to be in another world, equipped with a map of the city I turned around every corner. At the IAT me han equipped with every possible information and I also have a poster of the trulli regalto that I keep framed on the wall of my room. Sleep in a trullo was a pleasant experience, the prices are reasonable and the people are hospitable and friendly. The owner of the trulli, seen from my identity card which was my birthday, I was honored that I am a flower managed to last until Christmas. I have wonderful memories of Alberobello in Puglia.

Sono stata ad Alberobello qualche anno fa, nel mese di ottobre, ottimo il clima e ideale il periodo per poter visitare tutto con calma e senza la ressa estiva. Girando per le viuzze sembra di essere in un altro mondo, munita di piantina della città l'ho girata in ogni angolo. Alla IAT mi han fornita di ogni informazione possibile e mi hanno anche regalto un poster dei trulli che io tengo incorniciato nella parete della mia sala. Dormire in un trullo è stata una piacevole esperienza, i prezzi sono modici e la gente è ospitale e cordiale. Il proprietario del trullo , visto dalla mia carta d'identità che era il mio compleanno, mi ha omaggiata di un fiore che son riuscita a far durare fino a natale. Ho un bellissimo ricordo di Alberobello e di tutta la Puglia.

Symbols on the roofs of the trulli

Walking through the monumental trulli of Alberobello, we note that in some of them especially on the roof are symbols. According to studies, but then it is obvious symbols are purely Christians. In a sense, the symbolism of the trulli assumes a certain apotropaic value that serves as the symbol object to ward off the evil eye. The symbols are marked by hand with the aid of lime which makes the all white both inside and outside. Among the symbols are: Candlestick (Jewish symbol primitive), Cross the Tree, pierced heart (Christian symbol), and many other symbols that embrace the Primitive symbolism, cosmic and religious.

Simboli sui tetti dei trulli

Passeggiando per i monumentali trulli di Alberobello notiamo che in alcune di esse specialmente sul tetto vi sono dei simboli. Secondo studi, ma poi la cosa è evidente i simboli sono prettamente Cristiani. In un certo senso la simbologia sui trulli assume una certa valenza apotropaica ossia il simbolo serve come oggetto per scacciare il malocchio. I simboli vengono segnati a mano libera con l'ausilio della calce che rende il tutto bianco sia all'interno che all'esterno. Tra i simboli troviamo: Candeliere (simbolo ebraico primitivo), Croce ad Albero, Cuore trafitto (simbolo cristiano), e molti altri simboli che abbracciano la simbologia Primitiva, cosmica e religiosa.

The trulli of alberobello in a new look during the light festival

The Trulli of Alberobello in a new look during the Light Festival. Colored beams of light were projected on the cones of the trulli and alleys, creating a charming and magical at the same time. Unmissable event in the Itria valley which is held during the Christmas season already for a few years!

The trulli

The Trulli of Alberobello have been declared World Heritage by UNESCO. These are conical stone buildings typical of this village in Apulia. The trullo was born as a typical peasant house where man who cultivated the land owner could have a place to sleep and keep tools in the field.

Les trulli

Les trulli d'Alberobello ont été déclarés patrimoine mondial par l'UNESCO. Ce sont des édifices coniques en pierre, typique de ce village dans les Pouilles. Le trullo est né comme une typique maison paysanne où l'homme qui cultivait la terre du propriétaire pourrait avoir un lit pour dormir et garder les outils du domaine.
