Alberobello was once an area of forestry filled with beautiful oak and beeches, from which derives the name Alberobello, literally means beautiful tree. It was discovered as fertile soil with potential agricultural landscape. Soon after, the area became a settlement and many agricultural activities were performed. However, during the 14th century, there was a feud about taxation. As our expert guides you along the narrow passages of Alberobello, you will learn about the history and folklore traditions of how Alberobello came into existence. We will also take the opportunity to visit the only trullo church in Alberobello, Sant’Antonio.
As you visit the commune of Alberobello, you can’t miss these white washed conical shaped roof along the narrow passages. They are called trullo. It was believed to have existed in the prehistoric age but the oldest trullo is at Alberobello, dating back to the 14th century. It was first constructed with the intention of a temporary shelter and an agricultural storage house but soon afterward, it became a permanent home. Our expert guide will re-tell the story of how this ancient trulli came about and the construction methods in setting up a trullo.
