The “Trulli” and the sheepfold of Lupoli Manor

The manor is surrounded by 3,5 meters tall walls (so called “muro a secco”, made of loose, unbound rock). Also the 17th century sheep fold where the sheep and goats would pass the night is located within these walls. The interior of the stables is divided in different compartments by rock walls.

There are two pairs of typical “trullo” buildings made of rock, and two “pignon” stone huts, where the shepherds would sleep, gather their animals and process and store milk and cheese.
