Galle Architecture is an interesting mixture of colonial Dutch, English and Portuguese blended in with Sinahalese styles. Although few buildings of the Portuguese era survive, many buildings from the Dutch Colonial era can be found within the Galle Fort built in the year 1663. Galle Fort has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site largely because of its well preserved buildings.
