Bougainville Park and Statue, Papeete
Situated at the entrance of the park, facing the seafront, you can see the Bougainville statue which is dedicated to Louis Antoine de Bougainvile, a French sailor. He stopped in this city in 1768 and became very famous in Europe when he published his "Voyage autour du monde" in which he described Tahiti as heaven on earth where men and women lived happily in innocence, away from the corruption of civilization.
