An Old Dutch Fort. Its a great tourist sight in Galle and stuffed with restaurants and other local gem/clothe stores and some lovely Villas to spend a holiday in side the fort. We stayed at Villa 32 Middle Street. Great location to wander and take in the beauty of an old Fort. clean, friendly and highly recommended

The place is great as a tourist sight in Galle and it's stuffed with restaurants and other local gem/clothe stores. The pricing is a bit costly but in most stores there's no Catalogue/Menu and you can juggle/bargain the price. The better restaurant do have a fixed price menu tho 😏
