Tibrandsholm Castle Ruins

Krokom, Sweden

The history of Tibrandsholm is a mystery in Swedish history. The first written record date from 1402, when Margaret I of Denmark ordered to demolish it. The castle was probably owned by castle steward Tibrand. He belonged perhaps to Victual Brothers who fought against the Kalmar Union. In the 17th century during Swedish-Denmark wars Tibrandsholm was a soldier camp and execution place. There are also remains of Bronze, Iron and Viking Age settlements around Tibrandsholm.

The Trulli of Alberobello

The trulli, typical limestone dwellings of Alberobello in the southern Italian region of Puglia, are remarkable examples of corbelled dry-stone construction, a prehistoric building technique still in use in this region. These structures, dating from as early as the mid-14th century, characteristically feature pyramidal, domed, or conical roofs built up of corbelled limestone slabs. Although rural trulli can be found all along the Itria Valley, their highest concentration and best preserved examples of this architectural form are in the town of Alberobello, where there are over 1500 structures in the quarters of Rione Monti and Aja Piccola.

The property comprises six land parcels extending over an area of 11 hectares. The land parcels comprise two districts of the city (quarters or Rione Monti with 1,030 trulli; Rione Aia Piccola with 590 trulli) and four specific locations. 

Trulli (singular, trullo) are traditional dry stone huts with a corbelled roof.
