Galle Fort

La guerra tra Portoghesi, Olandesi e Inglesi

Lo forte di Galle

Distance from Airport : 2 h 17 min
Distance: 151 km

Parlando di città fortificate, nessuna supera in magnificenza Galle, con il suo forte olandese. La città possiede la particolarità di avere un forte proprio sull’oceano ed è anche quello meglio conservato nel  sud-est asiatico. Nominato patrimonio dell’umanità, rappresenta l’essenza del fascino del vecchio mondo, quando le strade principali erano costeggiate da ville coloniali olandesi. L’edificio più affascinante dell’area è l’edificio di culto della Chiesa riformata olandese, che comprende altri monumenti scolpiti e riccamente decorati per la gioia dei coloni olandesi. Se desideri far parte di questo bellissimo posto, essere in sintonia con il suo ambiente coloniale, il forte ospita alcuni fantastici alloggi, tipo boutique, in antiche ville restaurate che evocano la passata gloria coloniale.
