Built in the first half of 1700 on behalf of the wealthy family of a priest Cataldo Perta (1744-1809), the Sovereign Trullo was originally called the Court of Pope Cataldo. It's the only trullo to have a raised floor, accessible from the inside through a brick staircase, the first to be built with mortar. The current left-wing forms its nucleus, which can be traced back to the early 1600s. Over time it has had several destinations: court, chapel, pharmacy, monastery, country oratory, home. In the early 1800's lived there the relics of Saints Cosmas and Damian - Patrons of Alberobello - and since 1826 it was the seat of the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament. At the end of the nineteenth century became the property of the Family Sumerano (still owns), who made the Trullo their homes. Furniture and items are authentic. It's subjected to June 20, 1909 by Law n. 364; in September 19th 1923 was declared a National Monument. From 7 December 1996 is in the list of UNESCO sites - a World Heritage Site.
