Negambo The Sinhala name for Negombo, Mīgamuva (මීගමුව), means ‘mass of bees’. It is believed that a swarm of bees settled on a boat, and the place was named where the boat was pulled ashore.

Around the seventh & eighth centuries, the Muslim Arabs (Moors) who dominated the East-West trade routes, settled in Negombo and started trading in cinnamon. The best cinnamon in the world originated from Sri Lanka and the most prized variety came from the coastal stretch along Negombo. In the early 1500s the Portuguese grabbed the coastal areas as well as the Cinnamon trade from the Moors and built a fort for protection. The Dutch managed to oust the Portuguese in 1644 and improved the fort and fortified the town further. The British gained the town without resistance in 1796.

Many local Karavas converted to Catholicism during the Portuguese rule. As a result, the majority in Negombo and surrounding coastal areas are now Catholics. Negombo has an old world atmosphere with many Portuguese-era Catholic churches and forts. It is affectionately called ‘little Rome’ due to the numerous Catholic churches and Roman Catholic residents. A fine example is St.Mary’s church in the town centre.
