Alberobello

Alberobello is the capital of Trulli country, and the old town, which as been decreed a national monument, is an important tourist attraction and a World UNESCO site.
The main quarters of the town, Monti and Aia Piccola are entirely made up by Trulli lining the uphill lanes; a fairytale scene which never fails to enchant visitors to this part of the region.
