Where is the experience hosted

We would like to offer you the possibility to get in touch with our local culture, therefore we have chosen to host this making class in typical Apulian trulli. Our trulli are now well-known all over the world thanks to their peculiar shape and the technique is used to build them.
The trulli are buildings whose roof has the shape of a cone and they are entirely made of hand-formed stones. They look like large stone huts. You will have the possibility to visit these Apulian architectural wonders.
Your experience will be even more authentic thanks to the local family who will host you in Locorotondo. Its old town offers a series of panoramic views over the Valle d’Itria. You could admire olive trees, vineyards and fields cultivated by farmers.
