“Valle D’Itria”: a wonderful land just next to Salento. Things to see in: Alberobello

Divided between the provinces of Bari, Taranto and Brindisi, the Itria Valley is a portion of central Puglia, whose peculiarities are: the trulli, typical cone-shaped stone houses, and the rural landscape, characterized by the use of local stone used to build dry stone walls. The most beautiful villages are: Ostuni, Alberobello, Martina Franca and Cisternino.

Alberobello

Thanks to the impressive expanse of trulli of which they are the symbol, Alberobello has been recognized as a World Heritage Site since 1996.

Immersed in the heart of the Murgia, at 50 km from Bari, the village of Alberobello is unique in the world thanks to the dry stone houses, whitewashed with quicklime and with a cone-shaped roof, built with exposed stone. Crosses, pierced hearts and zodiac symbols decorate the roof of each trullo, which still retains its mystery intact today.

The old town is a maze of winding alleys and characteristic squares that intertwine in the Rione Monti, where the “Siamese trulli” stand out, with their original two-cone roof, the Church of Sant’Antonio and the Trullo Sovrano. Do not miss the Museum of the Territory, housed in a complex of communicating trulli, and the House of Love, today a precious tourist information point, the first building in the entire town built with lime and mortar.
