The capital of the trulli was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
It is a country composed entirely of white trulli in the winding streets whose name derives from Sylva Arboris Belli (war tree forest), an oak forest that once covered the entire area.
The monumental area comprises the districts Monti and Aia Piccola, entirely composed of trulli, united to groups and lined up along steep and winding streets that climb the hill. On the top of Monti, it lies the modern church of S. Antonio, also shaped trullo. From this point you can enjoy a unique and spectacular view that makes Alberobello one of the most beautiful places in the world.
The specimen most comprehensive and highest trullo (15 meters) is the so-called Sovereign Trullo, two-storey, located in a small square behind the Mother Church: www.trullosovrano.eu
