Galle

Galle is a city on Sri Lanka’s southwest coast, 119 kilometres from Colombo. Galle is an outstanding example of a fortified city established by Europeans in South and Southeast Asia, demonstrating how European architectural forms blend with South Asian customs. The Galle Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Asia’s largest remaining European-built stronghold. The city is unlike any other in Sri Lanka, and meandering through its narrow streets might make you forget you’re in the country. It’s like walking through the alleys of a mediaeval European city!
