Ahu Akivi, Easter Island
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
See the sacred Ahu Akivi, a religious site on Easter Island that contains seven moai stone figures carved between the 13th and 17th centuries. The identical human-like statues were discovered in 1955 and restored in 1960 by a team of American and Chilean archaeologists. The statues have an astronomic importance, facing the sunset during the vernal equinox and showing their backs to the sunrise during the autumnal equinox. A visit to Ahu Akivi represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Hanga Roa vacation builder to plot your vacation.

Un grupo de moais, menos impresionantes que otros grupos, quizás por el grado de conservación. Están en medio de un campo, y suponen que miraban hacia un poblado que ya no existe.A group of MOAI, less impressive than other groups, perhaps because of the degree of conservation.

One of the places on eastern island with the statues. Like the others it's nice to visit this spot to get the whole picture.
Here you will found 7 moais looking to the sea, they put it there in order to frighten the conquerors, really beautiful to have nice pictures with the sunset in the back.
Peaceful location. Toilet inside the store here is expensive. Try to avoid it.
The only moais on the island that are looking out towards the ocean. The roads to get to these ones are pretty poor but all good in a 4x4.
pooper nnnnnnnnoooooooooo by day
