Galle Fort : Michelin's recommendations
As early as 1589 the Portuguese built Fort Santa Cruz to protect the town of Galle. The Dutch developed the fortifications and built the Fort Quarter inside the ramparts. This intact area constitutes the vital and palpable memory of that past linking Europe and Asia.
