Proud Culture and Heritage of Galle

Our heritage and culture is a true fusion from around the world starting with the historical kingdoms to the colonisations by the Portuguese, Dutch and British. As you would imagine all these elements combined with our island’s unique and diverse geography makes for an unparalleled travel experience.
