Let Juliet Coombe, help you discover why Galle was a thriving merchant trading spot for thousands of years and tell you what really happened in 1640, when a bloody 4-day battle between the Dutch and the Portuguese sealed its fate. Find out how the largest living fort in Asia was created, using granite ballast from the merchant ships arriving from Europe and coral from the sea.

This fascinating walk of UNESCO listed Historic Galle Fort will take you behind the coral walls of this magical ancient citadel to meet the original merchant families, experience the spice trade first hand and learn how life was during the colonial period. Galle is a place that will make you think, laugh, debate, dream, and ponder as you learn what really makes it tick.
