Negombo Dutch Fort, as the name suggests, is located in Negombo. Initially a Portuguese creation, it was rebuilt by the Dutch after they seized it. Although the fort now lies in ruins, it has played quite a role in the colonial history of the country.
The Dutch Fort is near a lagoon and the Esplanade, a field that witnesses many cricket matches. The famous Negombo fish market lies in its vicinity. After its capture by the British, the fort was almost entirely demolished to build a prison, which continues to be in use today. The remains, namely the clock tower, the rampart and the bastions, exhibit influences of both Dutch and British architecture.
