Galle Dutch Fort
Although the Galle fort is famous as a Dutch fort, the construction of the fort was started by Portuguese. Actually Galle was considered as the place where Portuguese first arrived to Sri Lanka in 1505. The famous Portuguese invader "Lorenzo de Almeida" was able to make a close connection with the Sri Lankan king Dharmaparakramabahu and got his blessing to built a camp, which was done to ensure the safety of Sri Lanka. But ultimately this place became a prison for the local Sinhalese community who were against the cruel Portuguese rulers.
