A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Alberobello boasts numerous unique "Trulli" style stone huts. With its origins in prehistoric times, trulli huts have survived to be functional buildings of modern times. Not only is this area a World Heritage Site, it is also a significant tourist attraction of southeastern Italy. Some claim the stone houses originated from the time when permanent dwellings were taxed.... as stone huts with no mortar, these Trulli could easily be torn down and rebuilt.
