The jewel of Southern Ceylon, Galle is the epitome of peeking into a colonial stronghold. The cobblestone streets of the timeless Galle Fort are strewn with colonial piles, each of which unlocks a memory of days gone by. Striking monuments within the fort include the Clock Tower, the Galle Lighthouse, the Dutch Reformed Church and the Meera Mosque. Nestled within short proximity to Galle are the beaches of Unawatuna and Talpe.

As the night ebbs daylight hues into a sleepy monochrome, the Galle Fort takes on the look of an old, black-and-white photograph. Watching from the terrace, your mind spins back to centuries before. History lives here…
