The capital of the southern province is a city with a colourful
history. UNESCO declared World Heritage Site the magnificent Dutch fort is the
most popular attraction of the town. 300 year old Dutch atmosphere is still
very much alive around the fort and amidst its many historical buildings not
invaded by the skyscrapers. The beautiful beach of Unawatuna is just 6km south
east of the city centre.
The southern coastal belt is the most popular among the
tourists and comes to life mainly from October through April when the monsoon
moves northeast and the sea becomes calm with blue skies. The earliest European
administrative centre of Sri Lanka was the major port and the largest city
until the British shifted the port to Colombo. The City of Galle had been the
European administrative centre over 4 centuries.
