Fodor's Review

Missionaries might have brought Christianity to Easter Island, but the Rapa Nui people brought their own beliefs to Christianity. Find the two intertwined in this white church on the hill overlooking Hanga Roa. The paintings of the Via Crucis on the walls are what you would find in any Catholic church, but the wood figures have a clear Rapa Nui flavor and one of the altars rests on a block of local volcanic stone. At the first mass on Sunday morning at 9 am, hymns are sung in Rapa Nui.
