The UNESCO listed site at Alberobello is just 17 km. inland from the coast and offers the chance to see the unusual trulli properties. It is a dry, almost arid, landscape which is covered with olive groves, orchards, vineyards and the trulli (strange circular buildings with conical roofs and domed within, built from local limestone without mortar). Camping Dei Trulli is a short stay site offering visitors a chance to explore the area. It has 40 touring pitches all with 6A electricity. Bungalows and caravans are available to rent. The grottos of Castellana are not far away.
These offer a one- or three-kilometre route through this speleological complex. Alternatively you could visit the Speleological Museum or the astronomical observatory at Sirio which offers the chance to view the sun through a telescope fitted with special solar filters.
