Ancient warehouse that became a kindergarten and now a guesthouse
House of spice
One of the older buildings at Lighthouse Street. The old brick wall inside reveals the history as a spice warehouse dating back to the 17th century. Later it was home to a Montessori kindergarten.
In 2008 the complex was renovated and turned into guestrooms for Fortaleza Hotel, named after the first fortification in Galle: the Black Fort.
