The niches obtained in the thick masonry of the trulli were once used as beds for little children or as storage of modest food preserves and simple kitchen tools, hidden behind a curtain. They are made of white and clean stones, which today tell us the modest but dignified life of those people who lived there. Their hard work and deep respect for this land and its traditions give us this stone treasure today and convey the charm of a unique landscape that has made Apulia famous all over the world.
The Trulli are nowadays a “National Monument and World Heritage Site” and are considered as a “unique and exceptional testimony of a disappeared civilization and tradition, an great example that illustrates a significant period in human history and a particular culture”

Once used by peasants as beds for the night, small warehouses to store work tools or stables to shelter animals, the trulli still boast the special charm of ancient things.
