... unfinished houses being lived in!
Back to the trulli houses - one was only 14 square meters in total and with a family of seven living in it - 3 slept upstairs, 4 down stairs, the kitchen was the size of a closet and toilet outside. The walls are white washed limestone and the roof is like a grey slate stone stacked into a cone shape.

... in the photos. We had a great walk around the Rione Monti area, which has lots of homes with the cute roof & pinnacle. We also saw nice churches and went inside one (now a museum) to get an idea of what they are like. Another highlight was purchasing Craig’s first birthday gift – very nice leather ‘man bag’. The town is quiet and easily facilitates cars and tourists – although as usual we had a panic to ensure ...
