A nineteenth century complex consisting of trulli and lamie restored using ancient traditions of the master trulli builders.

A wonderful spot when you can rediscover fragrances and colours of bygone days and breath fresh air of the hills within a stone's throw of the Apulian sea.

ABOUT THE AREA

Trulli La Macina is situated in Contrada Calongo at Cisternino in the heart of Murgia and overlooks the evocative Valle d'Itria. A picturesque landscape among farms, trulli and dry-stone walls, immersed in the countryside with its orchards and age-old olive trees, which create breathtaking contrasts and scenery. From its strategic position between Bari and Brindisi, you can easily reach fascinating places and routes among nature, history and culture.

TRULLI

The trulli, belonging to Unesco heritage, are original and primitive dry-stone buildings with a central plant on which the typical cone shaped dome raises.

They were built by peasants using the stone removed from their vineyards. The thickness of wall together with the reduced opening of the windows make them naturally cool in Summer and warm in Winter. The lamie, square shaped structures are often annexed to the trulli and were used as peasants' houses.

FOOD

Fundamental ingredient of this experience is the simple but creative Apulian food. Famous for its dairy products and its renowned wines, the characteristic is use of local ingredients and wild herbs and spices.

The Puglia region

Cisternino sits in a historic zone of Itria Valley (Valle d'Itria) which is best known for its prehistoric conical, dry stone buildings, trulli (that are preserved under UNESCO legislation due to cultural significance), and its fertile soil making it home to the Salento wine region. The territory of the town of Cisternino was inhabited since the Palaeolithic.

The name of Cisternino derives from eponymous hero Sturnoi, companion of Diomede, who founded the town after the Trojan War.

Afterwards, the center was occupied by the Romans, who called it Sturninum, occupying its territory after the neo-colonization and the return from expansion wars in the Mediterranean. The Goths, with their looting, devastated the old town of Sturninum. The current Old Town is reborn thanks to the Basilian monks in the Middle Ages, that called it Cis-sturnium (below Sturnium). The first testimony of the House of Cisternino is the discovery, under the Romanesque church of S. Nicola, of the remains of a small Christian church, dating from around 1000. Pope Alexander III, in a papal bull of 26 February 1180 gave the church and Casale of Cisternino to the Bishop of Monopoli.

"LA MACINA : MOLTO PIU' CHE TRULLI ...."

Nel mese di novembre io ed il mio compagno abbiamo trascorso quattro giorni nella localita' di Cisternino ,alloggiando presso i trulli La Macina. Al nostro arrivo,divenuta sera,ci sono apparsi,spiccare nel mezzo di un enorme giardino , dei meravigliosi trulli,cangianti nel loro caratteristico bianco,illuminati da una serie di lucine che rendevano lo scenario favoloso. L'indomani mattina ,al risveglio,appena usciti all'esterno del 'nostro' trullo,eravamo immersi in un giardino ricco di ogni varieta' di fiori,frutti e colori... davvero una location notevole. Enorme la cura nell'arredamento interno e nell'utilizzo di vari oggetti rivisitati . Per non parlare della gentilezza,cortesia ed estrema simpatia del proprietario, che ci ha fatto sentire come in famiglia,consigliandoci con grande attenzione i vari iter da scoprire e visitare nei pressi. Per pigrizia non sono solita commentare le location dove alloggio,ma in questo caso non e' stato possibile astenermi. Grazie e grazie ancora al signor Enzo.
