• Excursion to the fortress of Galle •
When visiting the fortress of Galle, you will see an impressive example of the island's varied history. After hundreds of years of trading here, the Portuguese laid the foundation stone for the building in the 16th century, which in turn was conquered by the Dutch in 1640. They built the fortress architecture that has been preserved to this day, but in 1796 it was taken over by British colonialists. The area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and you can discover sights including churches, a harbour, the old lighthouse, the English gate and some Dutch buildings.
