What is Grotta del Trullo?

Grotta del Trullo is among the most evocative karst cavities of the Apulian territory. Its modest size, together with the amazing amount of stalagmites and stalactites, make it a real jewel of millenary beauty. The only cave, today, kept under a trullo, is the first tourist cave in Puglia.
