The Essential
Recommended
On the southwest coast, Galle has not lost its ancient charm. The harbour, protected from the monsoons, on the Spice Route was appreciated by Arabic, Portuguese, Dutch and British fleets. Today the ramparts, swamped in vegetation, and the maze of lanes lined in colonial houses are popular with the locals. The historic town and its fortifications are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
