Probably the best and most interesting thing we saw in Vino Del Mare. At least we saw a real statue from Easter Island

Moai or statue which is the replica of the one found on Easter Island. It was actually removed from it's original place in Easter Island and brought here. The statue is situated right outside Fonck museum.

Hello, Sorry I have not been to Easter island. What I read about them was its a good 4-5 hours flight with decent pricing and since it was 4 of us, it would have been decent budget hit just to see one thing. Hotels there... More
