Easter Island

3 exhibitions in Occitanie

Easter Island, marooned in the vast Pacific Ocean,

and confined to a piece of land of 165 km², was one of the last lands colonised by humans in around the year one thousand. The island fascinates us as much because of its location as its unusual creations, and has never ceased to inspire collective Western imagination, fuelling fantasies and the strangest of tales. But it is also a living territory that is still evolving: some of its secrets are being unveiled with advances in science.
