Galle, Sri Lanka

The Portuguese founded this port town in the 16th Century, blending their architectural styles with the traditional style already being employed here. The British arrived later and added some additional fortifications, which is why it's now a heritage site, supposedly the best example of a fortified port built by Europeans in South-East Asia.
