Stone house with a conical roof

Trulli are small stone dwellings with a conical roof seen throughout Apulia, which were made of limestone slabs held together without mortar. The construction style allegedly originated in the 17th century when a count ordered his serfs to construct drywall dwellings that would not classify as houses and thus not be subject to taxation. A large collection of trulli can be found in the town of Alberobello, a World Heritage Site and popular tourist attraction.
