Easter Island, one of the most spectacular and strange trip one can experience on this small planet!

Sunset behind moai statues, Easter Island


Isolated and quiet, the island has a particular spiritual and religous atmosphere. You feel lost and surrounded with all these frightening Moais.
More than 3600 km west of Chile and more than 2055 km east of Pitcairn Island (another "in the middle of nowhere" Island), Easter Island is definitely the most isolated place in the World (well, with Perth, Australians would tell you).

The only Catholic Church on Easter Island. Hanga Roa church


Easter Island, Rapa Nui, Isla de Pascua, Ile de Pâques... whatever the language, the name keeps its magical touch.

New photos have been added recently. Come on Landolia to discover this beautiful island... and maybe you'll plan your next trip there!

Brief Description (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/715 )

Rapa Nui, the indigenous name of Easter Island, bears witness to a unique cultural phenomenon. A society of Polynesian origin that settled there c. A.D. 300 established a powerful, imaginative and original tradition of monumental sculpture and architecture, free from any external influence. From the 10th to the 16th century this society built shrines and erected enormous stone figures known as moai, which created an unrivalled cultural landscape that continues to fascinate people throughout the world.
