A trullo (plural trulli) is a traditional, stone dwelling which can be found in Puglia in southern Italy.
Puglia is a long, narrow region in Italy, which reaches from north of the hilly Gargano peninsula all the way down to the ‘stiletto heel’ of Italy’s iconic boot-shape. This includes the Salento, famous for its stunning beaches, which comprises most of the ‘stiletto’ beginning around Ostuni to the east and Taranto to the west. Not much more than 50kms wide, this pretty peninsula is flat and covered in olive groves, ending where the Adriatic and Ionian seas meet at Santa Maria di Leuca.
North of the Salento peninsula is the tranquil Itrian Valley, situated on a limestone plateau known as the Murgia. The main towns of the Itrian Valley are Cisternino, Alberobello, Locorotondo, Ostuni, Martina Franca and Ceglie Messapica.
