Galle Fort • Streets

Wandering through the labyrinth of Fort’s narrow, cobbled streets feels like taking a peek into the past. The facades and alleys bearing the names of long-lost trades, old families and forgotten icons date back to the period when Portuguese, Dutch and British ruled the coast of Ceylon, with Galle as its undisputed cosmopolitan hotspot. The history of Fort lives on in its street names; each street has its own distinct character and stories to tell. The mood around town changes with the sun, from early morning until late evening. Join us for a culturally curious exploration of this unique old city!
