Trulli was first thought to have existed during the prehistoric time. However, the oldest form of trullo is found in Alberobello , dating back to the 14th century. The white-washed limestone houses with cone-shaped roof are amongst the ancient dwellings that still survive to this day. Trulli was constructed as a temporary shelter because of a tax feud between the governors. Now, it is used as permanent residents even some are converted to hotel usage. Our expert guide will show you the construction methods of a trullo to show you how it was during the Middle Ages.
