Trinco City Tour – Historical

Characterised by the distinctive Swami Rock and its pristine beaches, the city of Trincomalee offers travellers a rare glimpse into a bygone era shrouded in mystery and folklore, ancient ruins and temples, towering colonial forts, and underwater worlds waiting to be discovered.
