This church which is also referred to as the Holy Cross Church stands out for it’s external decoration and the gardens that surround it. Mainly remarkable is it’s facade that mixes Christian religious motifs and Rapa Nui elements. It has several unique carvings inside which are worth viewing. Certainly would very highly recommend visiting this unique church to any traveler in Easter Island.

The name of this church is Church of the Holy Cross. It is a Catholic church that has been on this site for almost 100 years and until recently was the only church on the island. Catholic Mass is celebrated here on Saturday evening and twice on Sunday morning. The church is free and always open during the day so you can have a look anytime. The mixture of Christian and Rapa Nui symbolism is noted on the exterior as well as the interior. Inside , some of the wood carvings are very intricate. See photos posted.

We made a quick stop between masses on a Sunday...nice slice of life on the island. The Virgin & infant carved of wood at one of the side altars is very nice and traditional to the Island.

I stepped by the Church before goinf to the Craft Mall which is right at its side. The exterior is full of symbolism and beauty, and I really missed going to a mass there, although I'm not religious. Pay attention to the symbols of Catholic Church and Rapa Nui culture mixed outside, and to the beautiful carvings of Saint María of Rapa Nui, Saint Michael and Saint Franciscus inside. The baptismal font also has Rongo Rongo scriptures.

Great carvings and stained glass. Beautiful high wooden ceiling. When I went the front entrance was locked so I had to go around the left side entrance. Very peaceful.
