This shore excursion of Alberobello is all about the ‘trulli’; the dry stone huts characteristic of the area.
We’ll start in the neighbourhood of Aia Piccola and admire these charming buildings and their conical roofs. Originally constructed for residential use or for the storage of grain and straw, these traditional structures are now a popular tourist destination.
If we examine the roofs, we notice ornaments and painted symbols. With mystical or religious significance these were meant to protect the residents living inside.
We’ll continue the shore excursion in Rione Monti. Most of the trulli here been converted to craft stores and souvenir shops. A great spot to pick up something for friends and family back home.
The last port of call will be the Church of San Antonio, built in 1927 in the same whitewashed ‘trulli’ style. At the end of the shore excursion we’ll return to the port.
