At Church of Rapa Nui, witness how Easter Island's Rapa Nui culture has melded with the traditions of the Catholic Church to create a distinctive place of worship. Every Sunday, the intimate church fills to the brim with locals and visitors for a two-hour service, in which markers of the local culture include songs in Rapa Nui and Tahitian languages. Visit the church at other times to take photos of the ornate interior, which features wood carvings of important Catholic figures created in Rapa Nui style.

  • Chirch of Rapa Nui is a colorful Catholic Church that incorporates some of the Rapa Nui culture in statues, etc. in the church. It is worth a look.  more »
  • I was interested to go part of the mass, and songs have been in rapa nui. We must get on Sunday before 9 o'clock already that if no one stays in the street and is impossible to enter.

  • This ultra modern church is located quite close to the center of Hanga Roa. Its architecture stride a little with the island where everything is shrouded in mystery. Around free WIFI as places where is WIFI are very few.
