Galle Fort, which overlooks one of the world’s most iconic and picturesque cricket grounds in the world, is a real Sri Lanka highlight.
Locally known as the Dutch Fort, the battlements that rise above the surrounding Indian Ocean have kept the citizens of Galle safe not only from foreign forces but also from forces of nature. The most notable example being the devasting tsunami of 2004.
It’s a magnificent, classic, military fortification with a gentle and inviting interior, all built on top of a south-facing protuberance of land.
