Galle was once the chief port of Sri Lanka. The Galle Fort is a vast garrison, spanning 90 acres, which was originally built by the Portuguese and later extended by the Dutch in 1663. Their influences are evident in the eclectic architecture all around including the famous Dutch Reformist Church. When the British took over the Fort, they too added their own influences.

Entering the gates to the Fort you will experience a much slower pace of life compared to the frenetic movements outside the Garrison’s walls. Galle Fort is one of Sri Lanka’s 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
