The Sri Lankan city of Galle was founded by Portuguese explorers in the sixteenth century. In 1640, the Dutch moved in and began fortifying the town by constructing an 89-acre (36-hectare) fort on the town’s promontory, surrounded on three sides by the Bay of Galle. Today, the old town of Galle and its fort, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1988, ranks among the best preserved European-built fortified cities in Southeast Asia.

The fort remains so much more than a historical attraction. The town is very much still alive. The walled city still houses government buildings, businesses, museums, cafes, and shops. The narrow streets are filled with residents going about their business. The ramparts overlook the Indian Ocean and provide a popular viewing spot at sunrise.

Galle Day Trip With Mangrove Safari From Negombo

Galle Day Trip With Mangrove Safari From Negombo

Galle - The city resembles no other city in Sri Lanka, and meandering around through the tight lanes makes you even overlook that you are in Sri Lanka. It really wants to walk the lanes of a medieval city in Europe! Extremely peculiar in away. Madu River is situated in the south of Sri Lanka close Galle. The water of the waterway is specked with little islands and the banks are altogether secured with lavish mangrove timberlands that are home to many unbelievable creature species. Appreciate many dynamic tropical winged animals and a couple of crocodiles in case you're fortunate enough. These animals are quite uncommon and don't care for groups.
