Galle is a city on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka. The capital of the Southern Province. Easily reached via the Southern Expressway, the A2 Highway or the coastal rail line, Galle is indeed a place worth a stop. 173km away from Colombo.
A living heritage site, this 90 hectare(222 acre) of land represents a superb blend of architecture. This historic city is a delight to explore on foot, an endlessly exotic old trading port blessed with imposing Dutch-colonial buildings, ancient mosques and churches, grand mansions and museums.
