Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, the world's most isolated inhabited island is also the most mysterious. Located in South Pacific 2400 miles southwest of Concepcion, Chile, Easter Island has been described as the world's largest open-air museum.
All across the rocky, lava-strewn landscape are the fallen
monuments of a long gone civilization. Giant, eyeless statues stare out
across the hills or lay face down in the dirt not having moved since being
toppled over 300 years ago. This site aims to give you a visual overview
of the island and brief introduction to its fascinating history. For more
information on all aspects of Easter Island including how to get there,
please visit the Easter
Island Home Page. (I'll repeat this link at the end of this site)
