Atuona main data and map

Atuona, peaceful little port at the head of the Taaoa bay, has emerged from obscurity for being the last resting place of Paul Gauguin and of the singer Jacques Brel. The tombs of these famous personalities, places of great pilgrimage, are on the side of the Calvary cemetery. In the village, the Gauguin Museum displays items related to the painter's stay and has copies of his works. The very famous «House of Pleasure» where Gauguin lived has been rebuilt near the museum. In the outskirts of Atuona, heading towards the airport on a site dominating Tahauku bay and Hanakee Islet a memorial to the singer Jacques Brel has been erected. Near the airstrip, Brel's little Beechcraft Bonanza airplane, baptized «Jojo», is on display. Also, very close to Tahauku, a track leads to Tehueko, a petroglyph site.
