Only 20 minutes drive from the main Katunayake airport, Negombo tends to attract tourists at the beginning or at the end of their holiday. The region is distinctively catholic with over 80% of the population of this creed, whereas in Sri Lanka as a whole the dominant religion is 80% Buddhist. With the abundance of churches, it is no wonder that Negombo is often referred to as “Little Rome”, and was visited briefly by the Pope in January 2016. The Catholic origins can be attributed to the Portuguese who once inhabited this corner of Sri Lanka. Names such as Silva, Perrera and Fernando are today still common local surnames, and Portuguese words have been adopted into the Sinhala language. Outside tourism, an important source of income is fishing. Visiting the Negombo Fish Market early in the morning is a major tourist attraction. You can also see them drying the fish in long rows alongside the market. Adjacent to this is the Dutch Fort which has now been converted into a prison. Negombo is Sri Lanka’s second largest fishing port.
