Italy - The Trulli of Alberobello
The Trulli of Alberobello in Bari, Italy.
Sent by Silvia, a postcrosser from Italy.
This is from UNESCO : Alberobello, the city of drystone dwellings known as trulli , is an exceptional example of vernacular architecture. It is one of the best preserved and most homogeneous urban areas of this type in Europe. Its special features, and the fact that the buildings are still occupied, make it unique. It also represents a remarkable survival of prehistoric building techniques.
