Alberobello - fairytale town

Info 1
If you ever find yourself in the south-eastern part of Italy, you should visit the main attraction of the area - an unusual town of Alberobello. Cottages with conical stone roofs - "trulli" - look like they came here straight from the positive illustration of fairy tales for children.
They have thick stone walls and small windows that provide residents cool in summer and warm in winter.
The roof almost every house is adorned with one of the mystical characters. This can be a religious symbol or zodiac, which should ensure the success of the inhabitants of the house.

Trulli, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
