The rendezvous of Portuguese, Dutch, and British colonial powers on the shores of Sri Lanka left its mark in the streets of Galle Fort. The massive moss dappled stone ramparts were built to withstand armies and welcomed within the walls a flow of traders, adventurers, merchants and missionaries. They built jetties, mansions, warehouses, courts, churches, mosques and temples and made Galle a colourful melting pot of culturesand religions. Today the iconic historic monuments, beautifully renovated hotels and picturesque, pastel-coloured streets tell the story of that magnificent multi-layered past.
