Galle

Mapper » Asia » South Asia » Sri Lanka » Galle

 

Galle is located on the coast of southwestern Sri Lanka.

The city and its fort are a charming time locked citadel with old world back streets and an eclectic mix of shops and cafes, all located on the city’s beautiful natural harbor. Together they form a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Galle fort is the largest remaining fortress in Asia built by European occupiers, and is an interesting example of the interaction between European architectural styles and South Asian traditions.

Galle’s historic old town has been unusually well-preserved, and remains “an outstanding example of an urban ensemble which illustrates the interaction of European architecture and South Asian traditions from the 16th to the 19th centuries” (UNESCO).

Galle also has nearby sand beaches for swimming and water sports, the best of which are around Unawatuna.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
