I love you, Trulli.

Alberobello, Italy
via design combo

In Pugli, Italy, lies the small town of Alberobello. Its enchanting structures, the trulli, represent a remarkable glimpse into prehistoric architecture. Tradition has it that the structures were designed to be dismantled rapidly; a technique to avoid the tax man. With no mortar, the homes could be reconstructed as easily as they could be taken down, allowing the settlers ease in residency. The charming village remains today, beckoning all who want to be transported to a magical destination.

It’s hard to believe such a place exists. Magical Alberobello!
