Galle

4.1
The southernmost city on the island, Galle combines colonial-era history with a tropical feel and climate. Most of the impressive colonial buildings here, including the UNESCO-protected fort, were built by the Dutch, with the British leaving the fortifications intact when they took over in 1796. As a result, Asia's largest colonial-built fort has protected a wealth of interesting architecture, now housing galleries, cafes, and shops, or fulfilling their initial intended purpose as law courts and administrative buildings. Nearby beach towns provide an altogether different taste of life in the south of the country, and represent popular places to visit when on holiday in Galle. Galle is in Galle District.
