Cruises from Galle
Galle is a city situated on the SW tip of Sri Lanka, 119 km from Colombo. It is perhaps best known for its world heritage site, the Galle Fort, which is the largest remaining fortress in Asia built by Europeans. It highlights the interaction between European architectural styles and south Asian traditions. A ‘must see’, the fort with its grass-clad walls, a church, a mosque, and pleasant surroundings, helps visitors to understand the interesting historical background to this delightful city.
Other prominent landmarks in Galle include the natural harbour, the National Maritime Museum, St. Mary's Cathedral founded by Jesuit priests, and Amangalla, the historic luxury hotel.
