The ‘Monti’ quarter in Alberobello
The monumental part of Alberobello rises up on two hills separated by a limestone cleft, called Largo Martellotta, now an important artery of the town, known to the people of Alberobello as the water-cistern.
On the higher hill, is the ‘Monti’ quarter, declared a national monument in 1910. The whole quarter is populated by trulli. There are about 1,000 of them. The hill is marked off by eight small streets that converge towards the top where the church of S. Antonio di Padova is found, which was opened to the public in June, 1927.
