The large number of archaeological sites on Easter Island give an idea of the relevance of the ancient Rapanui culture. Here you will know the most important.
We could say that Easter Island is a huge open-air museum. Archaeological sites are scattered throughout the island, and they give an idea of what their culture was like, the development achieved when sculpting the stone to create the huge moai with its gigantic ceremonial platforms and the beliefs that their organization was based on. Discovering these places is quite a fascinating adventure worth living without haste.
However, Easter Island archaeology is not limited to the moai, but includes ceremonial altars, remains of ancient tombs of chiefs and important people that were buried according to Rapa Nui traditional religious rites, ceremonial caves, petroglyphs and more.
Due to the abundance of archaeological remains and the special geographical situation of the Easter Island, which has favored the island keeps still pretty virgin (very few visitors it receives), in many cases it is possible to tour the archaeological sites alone. An experience that leaves no one indifferent.
