Religious, Spiritual sights in Rarotonga & The Cook Islands
- Sort by:
The CICC is a fine old white-coral building, much in the same mould as other CICCs in the Cooks. It was built in 1853, when Aaron Buzacott was the resident missionary. The interesting graveyard around the church is worth a leisurely browse. At the front you'll find a monument to the pioneering Polynesian missionary, Papeiha.
Just to the left (as you face the church) is the grave of Albert Henry, the first prime minister of the independent Cook Islands. You can't miss it - it's the one with a life-size bust of the man himself. Other well-known people buried here include author Robert Dean Frisbie. Travellers are welcome to attend services.
