  • the visit with his sculptures and the touch can't miss in the religious beliefs of Rapa Nui sculptures

  • You should go to this mass if or if, on Sunday there is a at 09:00 and I think than other at 11:00. The songs are in rapa nui, which makes you happy, but don't forget that it is a religious ceremony and therefore should not be walking filming or taking photos

  • Even without being a believer, a mass crossing is needed Sunday. PDT the first mass of 9 h, the prayers and songs are in rapanui, the traditional language of the island. And you can even sing the lyrics are projected on the walls. Don't miss the traditional costume of the priest and the mini concert improvised after mass by musicians! Typical!
