The trulli , limestone dwellings found in the southern region of Puglia mainly in the town of Alberobello are remarkable examples of drywall (mortarless) construction, a prehistoric building technique still in use in this region. The trulli are made of roughly worked limestone boulders collected from neighbouring fields. Characteristically, they feature pyramidal, domed or conical roofs built up of corbelled limestone slabs. The town of Alberobello has been declared by Unesco a World heritage site.
