    Nice small gallery with a collection of art representing many sides of Sri Lanka. The posters come in a variety of sizes so one can pick according to requirements. Bit on the pricey side though.  more »

    In the middle of the Pedlar street corner. Quickly find if walking in the old poster, because it sells. Same design have some size, postcard size is 350 rupees. (Discounted if you buy 10 and. ) I think design is nice looking and always want. Just to see the building on the second floor are like warehouses, but fun. Since no similar shop Sri Lanka two weeks traveling to not miss buying.

    Bright, small shop/gallery. Interesting but expensive posters. Worth a visit in beautiful if maybe overly restored area of Galle, the tourist trap part.

    If you are on the look for good posters or postcards of Sri Lanka this is the ideal place to visit. We were immediately drawn to the lovely postcards of tuk- tuk and the Sri Lankan buses. The new posters of old Indian themed cinema is a nice addition to the 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.
