Galle is the largest and most important city in the South of the island. It is an interesting blend of culture, history, heritage and tradition and constantly attracts a steady stream of tourists and locals. Varied types of accommodation and eateries throughout the city ensure that there is something for everyone.
Galle is located 146km away from the commercial capital of Colombo. Its significance is derived from fortress of Galle, built during the Dutch Colonial period nearly 400 years ago. Within this charming town one is transported back to a lost world of cobblestone streets and gabled houses. Within the fort dungeons, museums, and churches along with the Galle Lighthouse and awe-inspiring ramparts contribute to making this a city with a character.
