Today we are traveling to South America, specifically on the magical Easter island . the place with the remnants of an ancient civilization and the turbulent past.

Politically, Easter island is part of Chile since 1888. He has a strange triangular shape, almost completely flat with three volcanoes.

Rapa Nui (Easter island named by the locals), is perhaps the perfect place to discover the Polynesian culture of its inhabitants and the tradition of putting statues of religious significance.
