    These are pretty cool and I like the tax collector story better, too. I also like the signature designs left on each one. It makes them all a little more unique.

    It's really beautiful out there! It would be really nice to be able to visit this and see the houses in person. I think that taxes story is quite funny but imagine if it were true. The houses looks like it would last though. I really love how it looks!

    This is something that I would like to see it but myself but at the same time i imagine it very touristy . . . isn't it? Apart from this, I don't believe the king's tax story, it would be too much work for the villagers, lol Elisa recently posted...Paris 1 Like a Local – Top Sights and Our Must See’s & Do’sMy Profile

    The cone shaped houses of Alberobello are truly one of a kind! I love the tax collector story and the fact that the village is still standing 700 years later is so amazing. Doesn't seem like there are a lot of tourists visiting.
