  • Historical place in colombo Nice parking place and more silenced place even in colombo
  • Located in the old part of Colombo city this building is an imposing sight. From the angels guarding its car park entrance to the many iconic figures featured throughout its interior, this cathedral is impressive. It also featured one of the most ornate baptismal fonts that I have seen in churches of any denomination. Very quiet atmosphere inside the cathedral considering its location. Highly recommended.
  • Lovely church.. very holy
  • Absolutely beautiful. St. Lucia's is testament to great architecture.
  • The best place for prayer in peacefull..

Where to stay in Colombo

Despite its relatively low cost of living, Colombo accommodations tend to be fairly pricey. Close to the sea and the lake, as well as near the city's parks and the plazas, hotels come in the form of old colonial buildings and ultra-modern high rises, with a decent selection of each to choose from. Budget-conscious travelers should pay attention to the short rental options in the town's more residential areas, or look for the smattering of simple, but serviceable options close to the main train stations, and on the side streets set back from the waterfront.
