And even the temple they built in the same style. These structures are called «Trullie», that translated from Greek – «dome». The name of the city of Alberobello is connected with the oak forest, which in ancient times in the south of Italy.

Literal arboris belli means «Beautiful trees». It is not surprising that people began to settle in these picturesque places. However, local laws did not allow them to build decent houses for living. So invented witty Italians to collect houses from local limestone, without bonding stones with cement or any other solution.

It was needed in order not to pay taxes. Officials coming with checks saw only piles of stones. As soon as they left, the house was quickly going to. Now Alberobello has 1,400 Trullo, many of which lead their history from the XIV century. Some posted souvenir benches, restaurants, museums. There is another cathedral in the city – In the name of the holy martyrs, the miracle, and the depletions of Cosma and Damian, who are considered patrons of Alberobello. These native brothers were born in Rome. Doctors by profession, they accepted the martyrdom in their hometown at the end of the III century. The brothers were a strict, chaste life and from God were endowed with a gracious gift of healing from diseases. Saints spoke sick: «We do not care with the power of the disease, but the power of Christ, the true God. Believe in it and you will be healthy».

Brothers called «Good doctors», After all, they did not take a fee for treatment. Their kind and disinterested attitudes they paid many of them to Christ. Cosma and Damian’s activities attracted the attention of the Roman authorities. Behind them sent warriors. Christians asked the brothers to hide for a while for those who resorted to their help.
