  • with the quite remarkable collection of all sorts of stuff (neu: Messie) wants to bring customers in his jewelry store. Who has a weakness for precious stones should take a look at the free Museum definitely and afterwards to enjoy a Cup.

  • Surprisingly vast range of antiques and artifacts. They make and sell jewellery too. If you are lucky you may get the chance to witness men polishing and cutting gems using very traditional methods. Very underrated place. Free entrance.
  • Los of intesting historic items without explanations. Free to visit if you exit through the related jewelery shop.
  • plenty of antiques, masks, gems, handicrafts,etc. and nice people. can spend a good 30 minutes browsing. For shoppers, nice variety in a compact place. worth dropping in, if you are in the vicinity.
  • Nice place. Find more old things at there. Really cool experience at there.
  • One of great personal antique collection

Where to stay in Galle

A handful of accommodations can be found within the walls of the historic fort at Galle, including upmarket hotels and simple guesthouses, although the relatively few options usually can't cater to the number of visitors to the old town. Unless you reserve your spot well in advance, chances are you'll be looking just north of the fort where, closer to the waterfront, sit a range of upscale boutiques with sea views, and further back, a good number of simpler guesthouses and hotels. Nearby beach towns, and Colombo, remain popular places to stay among visitors just wanting to take a day trip to Galle.
