Marae Titiroa & Marae Ahu-o-Mahine

Archaeological Site in Mo'orea

Past the agricultural college, the valley road comes to a parking area beside this vast complex, on the edge of a dense forest of magnificent chestnut trees. From the main marae a track leads to the tohua (council platform), and two smaller marae. Continue along this track until you reach the marae Ahu-o-Mahine, a more recent platform of round stones with an imposing three-stepped ahu (altar). There are explanatory panels in French and English.
