Trulli are traditional whitewashed buldings of Puglia with conical roofs which taper to a point or sphere called "Pinnacolo". The pinnacolo is made of hand carved stone, that may be one of many desings, chosen for symbolism.

This style of contruction is prevalent in all the surrounding countryside where the fields are separeted by dry stone walls.
