Galle Fort

Built in 1588, Galle Fort is a monumental landmark in the historic city of Galle, where Dutch and Portuguese colonial architecture have been preserved from the Colonial eras. As you enter the Galle Fort a sense of old world charm will enwrap you throughout the journey. Each building, each street of the Galle Fort depicts its own story whilst the museum will provide adequate evidence of a bygone era where colonialism existed in this enchanting fort of Galle.

The ancient Dutch influence is in each building, cafes, villas and houses where time seems to have stood still. With new restaurants, cafes, coffee houses, lifestyle department stores, and Sri Lankan handicraft stores the Galle Fort has something to offer to each and every explorer who walks in.
