Day 1: Galle - Unawatuna
Stop At: Galle Fort, Church Street, Galle 80000 Sri Lanka
The 17 th Century structural masterpiece of a bygone era is considered to be one of the finest preserved pieces of architecture of the Old-World in the whole of Asia. Within its fortifications lie some fascinating buildings that tell an intriguing tale of the colonial days. The Bastions are one of the more important features of the entire Galle Fort, as they were the first line of defense in the face of an invasion. Totaling up to 14 bastions protecting all corners of the fortress, each one had a specific purpose, to ensure discipline and order was maintained among the garrison. Today, the fort is an eclectic mix of history, culture, food and recreation all rolled into one. The Dutch laid out the fort city in a grid, paving the streets with cobblestones, mimicking the hamlets of Europe. Wander around these streets and stumble upon charming boutique hotels, antique jewellery stores, clothing shops, cafés, ice cream parlous and much more.
