Galle Fort · People

Fort is a gem of a heritage town, its red-roofed white-washed colonial houses catapult you back to days-long-gone. But more than the buildings, it’s the people that make this place unique. Fort is a place that celebrates unity in diversity; a glorious potpourri of ethnicity with a cosmopolitan vibe that is a vivid reminder of its multicultural past. We wander through fort to meet its long-time residents and hear their stories. Stories, of compassion, creation, reflection, profession, passion, and pleasure.
