The city of Galle in Sri Lanka plays a major role in Sri Lankan Tourism. The Dutch fort of Galle is arguably most interested among both Local and Foreign travelers. It was declared as a UNESCO world heritage site in Sri Lanka.

The initial fortifications, which were built in the late 16th century, were quite basic. However the fort underwent extensive modifications in the 17th century by the Dutch, making it one of the most important archeological, architectural and historic monuments to illutrate the European influence in South East Asia between the 16th and 19th centuries. Today, Galle is the largest remaining fortress in the whole of Asia that was built by Europeans. Thanks to continuous reconstruction and restoration work by the Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka Galle Fort remains a magnificent example of European architecture fused with South Asian traditions and maintains its polished appearance. When you visit the Dutch Fort at Galle you can enjoy a guided walk around the Fort and learn more about Galle and the European influence on the city. Alternatively, the area is a lovely place to take a gentle stroll along the character streets where you’ll unmistakably see first-hand the evidence of the Dutch touch.
