Stop At: Negombo Fish Market, Negombo Sri Lanka

Negombo was home to Sri Lankan fishermen and women who engaged in traditional fishing methods long before the city became a renowned beach destination with hundreds of beach resorts lining its sandy shore.
This large fish market, located at the western end of Negombo's seashore, is the center of all morning action. The Negombo Fish Market is one of Sri Lanka's largest and most important markets, which drives Negombo's economy.

Stop At: St. Mary's Church, Main Street, Negombo 22100 Sri Lanka

From the time Sri Lanka was controlled by the Portuguese, the Christian faith has had a strong effect on Negombo. Because of the city's huge number of churches, it is commonly referred to as "Little Rome."

The church's construction began in 1874 and was finished in 1922, after a lengthy break. The art and architecture of this church, as well as a few other comparable buildings in Sri Lanka, reflect the early twentieth-century cultural fusion of European practice with Sri Lankan art and architecture.
