Galle will mark an end to a wonderful cycling experience. Having cycled on a fairly flat surface on the last couple of kilometres you will reach the end of your great cycling expedition in the city of Galle.
Galle port is one of the best preserved examples of seventeenth century colonial fortifications in the world. The quaint narrow streets of this fascinating living museum still thrum with life even though the pace has slowed considerably since Galle’s heyday as the island’s premier port and trading centre just two centuries ago.
The fortifications of Galle were begun by the Portuguese in 1587 when they built the Black Fort as a lookout post, however it was not until the Dutch arrived in 1640 that the fort was considerably expanded and improved as imposing bastions were built and connected by thick rampart walls. In 1796 the British took control of this city and their rule marked the final chapter of almost four centuries of European domination which has resulted in the fascinating hybrid – architecturally, culturally and ethnically that Galle is today.
