Overview

Explore the scenic town of Galle, which is home to the Galle Fort with a history stretching back centuries. In the old days, Galle was a bustling port through which traders from far off lands shipped the island’s treasures cinnamon, gems, ivory and much more to markets in the western world. Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage site that draws visitors from over the world. You will enter the Fort through one of the two main entry points, and be prepared to witness the mighty Fort facing the majestic Indian Ocean. You would probably get a chance to see the local men who make a living by making a daring leap off the ramparts into the waters below. After exploring the Fort, you will criss – cross the picturesque streets within the Fort and catch a glimpse of ancient Dutch and English churches, chic eateries, art galleries and craft boutiques. Next, you will stop by to visit the Old Dutch Reformed Church an iconic monument of the colonial era. You will walk further down and explore the Gothic style All Saints Church as well. You will also visit the warehouses of the Dutch East India Company, the Old Dutch Hospital, the Court Square and the Sri Sudarmalaya Buddhist Temple. Next, you will spend some time at the National Maritime Museum, which is a treasure trove of history. At sunset, you will arrive at the ramparts and stop by the lighthouse to witness a stunning view. When you are heading back, you will see the famous stilt fishermen in action along the south coast.
