What is a Trullo?

So first of all, I bet you are wondering what a ‘Trullo’ even is, right? Well, let me give you a quick explanation and then you will see how special one is.

A Trullo is a small, dry-stone building with a conical roof which you will only see in the region of Puglia, Italy. First records show that Trulli were first built around the 14th century. The properties often have a unique shape which creates an quirky feel. It is a perfect space to use a residential or holiday home.

What is so impressive about the construction of the Trullo is that rainfall will train through the soil and flow through underground watercourses which means no permanent surface water. Quite often, Trulli have symbols painted onto their cones – these can be either religious or mystical and were meant to protect their inhabitants.
