Ostuni rises to over 200 meters above sea level and has spectacular views. Alberobello, the trulli village, is a UNESCO world heritage site: the trulli are remarkable examples of drywall (mortar less) construction, a prehistoric building technique still in use in this region. The trulli are made of roughly worked limestone boulders, collected from neighboring fields. Characteristically, they feature pyramidal, domed or conical roofs built up of corbelled limestone slabs.
