A trullo (plural, trulli) is a traditional Apulian dry stone hut with a conical roof. Their style of construction is specific to the Itria Valley, in the Murge area of the Italian region of Apulia. Trulli were generally constructed as temporary field shelters and storehouses or as permanent dwellings by small proprietors or agricultural labourers. The golden age of trulli was the nineteenth century, especially its final decades, which were marked by the development of wine growing.

Trulli often have painted symbols on the cone. Their origin is unknown but they usually have a religious or astrological meaning. Symbols may include planetary signs, the evil eye and the cross 

Trulli often come with lamie for sale. A lamia is a villa type building often on one floor and built in stone with a flat roof.

The southern part of Puglia, Salento, is also a significant area of the trulli or to be precise Pajare which are similar strutures. 

Pajare for sale in Puglia

The pajare are buildings once used by farmers to shelter themselves from bad weather or summer heat, used as a tool shed or as a bed during longer working day during the olive harvest. Inside they were small niches used for lighting the fire, and thanks to an external staircase it was possible to climb to the top of the building.

There are many scattered throughout the Salento area and many in the Lecce area date back to the year one thousand. They are made of stone and other materials readily available in the countryside. They usually have a single entrance while on the outside steps fruit and vegetables were often put to dry, such as figs and tomatoes.

One of the greatest testimonies of these constructions in Salento is that If many pajare have been destroyed over the centuries many others are still in perfect condition and are used  the various accommodation facilities, such as b&b and rental lets.

A visit to Salento will give you the opportunity to admire the pajare fro sale and perhaps invest in one of these ancient rural buildings, so typical of the Salento area, immersed in the beauty of the southern Puglia countryside
