This town is on the Unesco world heritage list.

Yesterday you have probably seen the trulli (sing. trullo). Little white buildings with a grey roof of slate. Nobody knows how old this type of building is, but it certainly existed before Roman times.
There are more than 1000 trulli in this town. Some still used as a home, others as shop, stable or store. There  is even a church in a trullo.
