One of the oldest buildings in the Galle Fort. It's said to have been built during the Dutch colonial era and still the structure and designs are well preserved even with the recent modifications... more »
A nice colonade of shops, bars etc. Worth looking at whilst you are walking around town. There is a pleasant bar on the sea side of the building where one can stop for a cooling drink. more »
