Puglia basks in Italy's Southern sun and is a land of extremes: deep sapphire waters offset intensely white towns; exaggerated miles of olive trees cover the horizon, sprinkled with compacted little towns. But Puglia is often associated with its architectural peculiarity: the "Trulli". These whitewashed rural homes are surmounted by conical teepee-like roofs made from stacked stones without mortar. The main concentration of trulli is found in the Valle d'Itria area: the town of Alberobello alone boasts more than 1,000 of these curious dwellings.
