Walking the Ramparts #2
Tourists and residents of the 16th Century town of Galle take an evening walk along the ramparts of the star fort that surrounds it. Although the town itself predates the arrival of the Portuguese in Sri Lanka in the early 16th Century, the town and the fort as they stand today date to the mid-17th Century Dutch expansion and renovation. Shot from the Aeolus Bastion in May 2015. In the distance is the Clippenburg Bastion, and the small structure built into it, below the ramparts, is what’s left of the Lloyds Signal Station established during the British occupation.
