Why Galle Is Important?
Take a stroll down the memory lane of centuries old European antiquity at Galle Fort and be lost in a historical nostalgia. This UNESCO world heritage site bears traces of a well trodden trade hub and an international port frequented by travelers around the globe. The history of Galle runs back to medieval ages. Located 131km away from the capital Colombo, this historic jewel is a must see for those who seek the pleasures of colonial architectural grandeur.
Galle was the most prominent ancient port in Sri Lanka which has been identified in Tolemy’s world map in the 2nd century. Galle Fort was first built by the Portuguese in early 1500s while retreating from their failed invasion of Colombo. Later the Fort was extensively modified by the Dutch in 1600s and is well preserved to this date without undergoing further alterations; thus making it South Asia’s best well preserved Dutch architectural site.
Completely restored old Dutch hospital in Galle Fort is now a great shopping complex, which gives you plenty of options to dine, wine and shop.
