The ancient Muslim port Galle, reputedly biblical Tarshish, has been occupied by British, Portuguese and Dutch troops, alternately since 16th century. The European influences are visible in Galle's faded colonial architecture. The Old Town, now a World Heritage site, features Dutch style and is enclosed behind imposing Fort walls. The Dutch Museum boasts its period rooms which depict life as a colony of Dutch. Martin Wickramsinghe Folk Art Museum features a remarkable collection of carriages and masks. Sri Lanka has had a huge importance for world's traders since 18th century, culminating in 19th and 20th century obsession with tea plant so a visit to Talgaswella Tea Estate is worthwhile. Nearby Unawatuna beaches are splendid.
