They are called trulli.

And here’s a church built in the same way as trulli:

Chiesa di sant’antonio

These trulli are in Alberobello town, Apulia, Southern Italy. The Trulli of Alberobello are part of the UNESCO World Heritage sites list since 1996. They 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.

It was a second time when I visited Alberobello. First time when I here it was in winter, and it was raining, and now with a sun panorama looks more beautiful. In the pictures you can see my sister πŸ™‚
